Considering a Masters Degree? Read on! (1622 hits)

Not once but three times this weekend did I review articles - from different sources - suggesting a Masters was all but required in this day and age. With unemployment and underemployment numbers higher than millions care for them to be, this is no time to close ones eyes and throw a dart towards selecting a Masters program.

I'm sure you've given plenty of thought to a particular professional role and have done all the research around responsibilities, advancement opportunities, and earning potential. Not so fast and not as if I'm doubting you. I figured I would share an article that highlights recent research done by Forbes magazine around the subject.

A few key points that stood out:

**The degree course could cost $60,000 or more in debt at a private university
**Information was captured using Bureau of Labor and Statistics data along with that of Payscale.com
**Computer science is the second-best advanced degree - the article will reveal that Physician Assistants ranked #1
