I wants to cheer for he. It wasn't easy; she probably worked harder than many undergraduates in cushier circumstances; she probably appreciates her degree more than they do.
But is this the future? The devil lurks in the details -- What counted for credit? What learning? How do we know? And there's a less nitty-gritty question too -- What does a bachelor's degree add up to? The dominant view has been that it is the sum of leaps through a certain number of credit hours.. Don't multiply, add. If 32 courses or so add up to 100+ credit hours, you've got your degree.
Some years ago a staff member at the National Humanities Center completed after years of trying a bachelor's degree. The cake we ordered for her came back with the wonderful sugary typo, CONGRADULATIONS. So, Ms Hunt, congradulations to you too and thanks for raising these questions for us.
