On most resumes, the education section comes after the personal data, and before work experience. However, if you feel your education is not as impressive as it could be, consider placing it after the experience section. Either way, include only your higher education background. Start with the highest level first. List the university, the degree you earned, your major field of study, and the year you graduated. If you were an honor student or phi beta kappa, this may be noted briefly. Other job related awards may be included, but don't elaborate. This is also the place to mention any continuing education or special licenses. However, leave off minor courses like three day seminars. If you attended college, but did not graduate, it's acceptable to list the college, and the dates. But don't try to claim a degree you don't have; employers have been known to check up on such information, so it's better to be up front about your education. In general, the longer you've been doing a particular job, the less your education will be scrutinized, and the more weight your job performance will carry.
