Journal Journal: Going back to school for entry-level tech jobs? 1

My boyfriend has a B.A. in Communications Media from a middle-of-the-road midwestern university. Now he's going back to the same university to get a Computer Science that he can apply for entry level BSD sysadmin jobs (preferably in Canada, if he can find them.) My question, as I'm not really a tech-sector person myself, is whether or not those of you in the profession think such a course of action is worth it? Considering he's working full-time (in a media job), he only has time to go to school part-time...which means a Computer Science degree would take several years. Would those years be better spent in some other tech job? Look forward to your responses.
