What would you like to do?
Usually, but not always Typically, one earns a B.S. or B.A. degree before earning a Masters Degree. Some schools, however, offer five-year programs that culminate… with a Masters Degree.
A masters degree is a more advanced degree and typically follows the bachelors degree. Which is better for you depends on your overall career goals and objectives. … The best course to study is the one that leads to your overall career goals and objectives. Thus, I would imagine you do not have any. So many individuals enroll in college programs without a specific goal in mind. As such, many become miserable in their work which is not good for them, or their employer. If you want to be successful in your work and life, carefully consider the following. To be successful in your work, you must acquire a vision. A vision is a clearly articulated picture of the future you intend to create for yourself. In other words, it's a dream. However, if the dream does not have direction, it will always remain a dream and will never become a reality for you. That vision should create a passion within you, a love for what you do and the benefit it brings others as well as yourself. Make sure the vision is specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and tangible. Let us look at this closer. When you believe you have chosen an appropriate career goal, look at it in SMART fashion as follows. * Specific - Make sure your career goal is very specific. For example, "I would like to be a teacher," is not specific. "I would like to be a high school biology teacher in New Jersey (USA) in an urban school by 2012" is. * Measurable - Make sure you can measure your progress. How will I know I am progressing in the right direction? This is where the development of short-term objectives comes in (discussed below). You will know you are on the right path as you accomplish each short -term objective. * Achievable - Is the goal achievable considering my current life situation and circumstances? * Realistic - Is what I want to do really realistic. For example, "I would like to be a middle weight boxing champion, and I am 63 years old." That is not realistic. * Tangible - What will I - specifically - have at the end? What will I be (exactly)? It must be very specific. Once you have that vision, you will need a mentor, counselor, or coach who will be able to help you develop a road map embedded with short term objectives leading to your overall career overall goals and objectives. The achievement of short-term objectives will indicate you are moving in the correct direction, and will also give you energy and excitement to carry on towards your overall career goal. It will take some research, but you most likely have some ideas already. Follow them through, look at the nature of the field, the everyday routine, the required education, the salary, the occupational demand and the related fields. When a career sparks an interest, try to shadow an individual who is actually doing what you think you might like to do. You can pick up valuable information this way. Thus, the following. * Acquire the will to change circumstances. * Acquire the vision (dream). * Develop a road-map embedded with short-term objectives leading to your overall goal and objective. * Just do it and do not let go until it becomes a reality.
What area do you need to go into to get your Master's degree if your bachelor's degree is in Family and Consumer Sciences?
A bachelors degree in one area does not mean you must take a master's degree in the same or even related field. For example, one can have a bachelor's degree in Psychology and… a masters in Organizational Management. You may have a bachelors in Medical Lab Tech, but take a Master's in Business Administration (MBA). Some have completed a Liberal Arts degree and went on to medical school. Some graduate programs may requires the appropriate prerequisites, however once you complete them you may go on to that program of study - provided you meet all other entrance requirements dictated by the offering department. The question is; which graduate program will fit your specific needs. I would advise you speak with the Department Chairperson or faculty where you completed your bachelors, if indeed your intent is to follow through to a higher degree within the same field. If your interest lies in another area, then you need to research which schools offer that program of study. You can do this by going to www.collegeboard.com/splash/ and use their College MatchMaker search engine. Have patience with this. When you get the hang of it, you can research any college or university by either name, or major and geographical area.. Viper1

The integrated bachelor's/master's program allows students to be admitted to a graduate program earlier in their undergraduate studies. Graduate-level course work is taken dur…ing the senior year and counts twice, first as credit toward the graduate degree and then as the undergraduate course work needed to complete the bachelor's degree. Students may complete their undergraduate degree in the three-year program or in the traditional four-year program. The program pairs undergraduate and graduate programs that best fit together so students can mix and match disciplines for the two degrees. For example, integrating the bachelor's and master's degrees in physics is a natural combination but so is a bachelor's degree in exercise and sports science combined with a master's degree in physical therapy. Other combinations, including those from the health and physical sciences, education, and the liberal arts, are available.

No, the degree levels are as follows from lowest to highest. Associates Bachelors Masters Doctorate (highest level of educational attainment) The associates and bache…lors are referred to as undergraduate coursework. Refer to the below. Associates Degree The associates degree is designed as a two year program of study as a full-time student provided the student takes the degree as prescribed by the college. There are some programs of study that may take a bit longer depending on the number of credits required. Usually these are programs within the health related fields. In addition, for students who require developmental course work as a result of basic skills testing, it would take longer. How much longer would depend on the extent of the developmental courses they are required to take. Evidently, those individuals who attend college on a part-time based would also extend their time in school. How much longer would depend on the credit load carried each semester . Typically, an associates degree takes between 60 and 64 credits to complete depending on the specific school, program of study, and state mandates. Bachelors Degree A bachelor's degree in most areas can require between 124 to 128 college credits particular to a specific program of study. This would be based on a college or university that operates on a regular two semester academic year which is the most common. For institutions that operate on a tri-semester or quarter-semester it would be quite different. That being said, the Bachelor's degree - in most cases - is designed as a four year program of study , provided the student is full-time and follows their chosen program of study as prescribed by the college or university, and also provided the individual does not require prerequisite or developmental course work. The minimum credit load for a full-time student is no less than 12 credits per semester. However, to complete the degree within the four years, a credit load of approximately 15 to 18 credits is recommended. For individuals who work or who have other responsibilities that would prohibit them from attending full-time, completion of the degree may take twice as long. Still, some of this time can be cut down by attending summer sessions and/or interim sessions. In addition, the bachelors and associate degrees are referred to as undergraduate degrees with the Masters and Doctorate degrees referred to as graduate degrees. The masters and doctorate degrees are referred to as graduate level coursework and typically particular to a specific field of study or profession. Masters Degree A masters degree can range from 30 to above 70 required credits depending on the specific program of study. The degree can take between two and three years to complete. The degree type covers most subjects and can be course based, research based, or a combination of both. Doctorate Degree The doctorate is considered the highest level of educational attainment and in most cases specific to one field of study. The degree typically requires a minimum of 60 credits plus a dissertation (which requires original research). The degree can take approximately four years to complete post bachelors degree.
