Degree name isn't accepted on profile

If you don't have a degree that matches the drop-down list, you will get an error. Is there a way to enter in the correct degree title or do I just leave it blank? I don't think it's right to select whatever is closest - isn't that misleading? I have a Bachelor of General Studies - Thematic Option in TESL*.

Hi Alicia,


Please read this Help Article for more information about how to add education to your profile. You can select a degree from the drop-down menu that is closest to yours and then clarify it in the Area of Study field and add more information in the description box.


Thank you.
