Many educational career opportunities require an advanced degree, including most school administration positions, and an MA is also required in most areas in order to obtain licensure as a professional counselor.

Like most educational opportunities, the cost of a Masters in Education program varies substantially based on the prestige of the program, the length of the program, the geographic area in which the program is taken and the overall reputation of the school.

Many students also use it as a stepping stone toward a doctoral program.
