Omitting course of study for a non related IT degree?

Thoughts on this strategy? I've done both and nothing is ever said in the interview. I almost wonder if it doesn't matter.... 6 in one hand, half dozen in the other?
See number 7. I always wondered about this. Omitting your degree if it's unrelated, it could make you look like you possess a divided mind.
I have to agree with this. A degree in a different field is better than no degree.
This also varies with age and experience. If you are 23 years old, applying for a systems administration job with little to no experience, and your resume shows a Bachelor's of Arts in Historical Restoration with a minor in Dance, I am going to look at it a bit critically.
Of course, me being me, I will probably bring you in for an interview just to ask the question. I figure I have had enough people waste my time who were qualified on paper, that I might as well give that one a shot too...
EG Bachelors of Science from State University?
Not the proudest moment of my life....... (Glad I graduated not to sound ungrateful, but it doesn't really tie back to IT or more importantly BI).
Maybe just leave it as is, keep it right on one line so it doesn't take up much space and leave it at that.
A computer science degree will always pique interest, as well as one from an ivy league or something cool from MIT or Stanford.
Recent: 11/2019 - RHCSA (RHEL 7); 2/2019 - Updated VCP to 6.5 (just a few days before VMware discontinued the re-cert policy...)
Working on: RHCE/Ansible
Future: Probably continued Red Hat Immersion, Possibly VCAP Design, or maybe a completely different path. Depends on job demands...
It's from a good school.
I'm keeping it as is, I am taking some MOOC courses and will leverage those....
