Back in the day graduating from college was a big deal – getting a master’s degree was for overachievers. Now that more and more people are getting college educations and prolonging their college experience by getting a master’s degree its worth has gone done. Don’t get us wrong, it’s still a really big deal, but in this day and age and with this economy – is it really worth the time and money?
The future may not be bright for everyone earning a graduate degree. In fact, some PhDs and students with a Master’s Degree are actually on food stamps or doing jobs not at all related to their field of study. It’s the reality for many and it’s an important topic to understand (especially if you’re considering grad school right now).
