If so, I either have good news or bad news for you.
Since I’ve been searching for “real” jobs lately, I find myself being drawn into articles like these: “8 College Degrees with the Worst Return on Investment.” While these articles may actually be beneficial, they scare me quite a bit.
Why do they scare me?
Number 1 on the list: Communications. Even though I do not directly have a communications degree, I did study Mass Communications with an emphasis on public relations. So this leads to the question: How good is a bachelor’s degree alone?
From multiple sources, I’ve been told to look for a good master’s program. I’ve been on the search for a program in the United States and I’ve been terribly let down. Nothing sounds quite as interesting as I had hoped.
More graduate students consider study abroad.
I have always been interested in doing a master’s program in Germany. And I found out that more people are trying to study abroad during graduate/master’s programs. Unfortunately, American schools give little to no scholarships or help students in any capacity to study abroad. But they invite a high number of people to study within the United States.
Is it ideal to go to a master’s program?
Doing a master’s program, in any country, seems to be ideal for employers. How else can you get three to five years experience at an “entry-level” position?
What are your thoughts? More importantly, should I get a master’s degree, especially if I want to work abroad?
