I am thinking about doing an online degree at Open University located in the UK. The reason being is that I will be working a full time job as a software engineer, and would like to get a degree in physics at the same time. The only caveat with a BSc (Honors) is that they only take typically 3 years full time and 6 years part time to complete.
How do american employers view a BSc compared to a BS degree where the BS degree took 4 years to complete? On a brighter note the BSc (Honors) seems to be more focused on the subject, whereas a BS degree contains a lot of fluff classes; that is, classes that aren't relevant to the subject.
