What kind of degree do you need to be an astronaut?
I've read that NASA's astronaut program accepts people from all walks of life. Is this true? What sort of degrees do they look for?

NASA's space program does indeed accept civilians for astronaut training as well as military pilots and personnel. According to their website, they accept candidates who have a four-year degree from an accredited school in either math, biological science, engineering, or physical science.

In addition to a degree, you'll also need at least three years of work experience in the sciences related to your major. The program prefers candidates with advanced degrees and will let a Master's or Ph.D stand as a substitute for work experience. They also encourage teachers to apply, and will consider teaching experience as equivalent to work experience in a "related" field.

Check out NASA's website for more information:

I am planning to take one of your courses - Medical Secretary Certificate w/ Typing Component which cost $1,228.00. It was mentioned here that in order to obtain this Certificate, I have to finish first the five courses listed, which also has corresponding price for each course. Does it mean, I have to pay the $1,228.00 plus the five courses price to obtain the Certificate for this course? Do I have an option to choose from which of the Five Courses Listed I wanted to take first? Where is exactly the location (country) of this site?
