Well, If you go to school for 4 years then you earn a BA, which is to me the lowest professional degree higher then the 2 year A.A which is just general. Then if you go to school for 2 more years to equal 6 you earn a Masters which is the middle professional degree, then if you go at the least 2 more years to equal 8 years you can get a doctoral degree, but in alot of careers that require a doctoral degree require you to go to a specific school such as law school, or medical school. Then maybe a internship is required. It's alot, but the pay is GOOD!

Well, it depends on the field, and also what one means when you say a "professional degree". That being said, when one thinks of a "profession" they are likely referring to a physician, dentist, attorney, or some other learned profession. The typical course involves 4 years of undergraduate education (B.A/B.S) in a given major. The next path involves investigating which profession one wishes to enter. That being said, some programs have prerequisites that have to be completed in order to be considered for admission.

The average length of schooling for a "profession" ranges from 2 years for a Physicians Assistant to 4 years for a physician or dentist. Law school is 3 years I believe. For physicians, one has to, in most cases, do 1 year of post graduate medical education (training after earning a MD degree) to be eligible for licensure in most states. But in reality, to practice, one needs to have completed a residency and be board eligible or board certified. A residency lasts between 3-7 years.
