Education

A masters is earned after students complete an undergraduate degree program. To obtain a masters, you usually need to complete 12 to 18 college courses that often involve completing comprehensive tests and/or a thesis.

Although some education can be very informal, most mainstream education happens in a more formalized setting. This sort of education is typically divided into various stages, which include preschool, kindergarten, middle school, and high school. Higher education includes college, post graduate programs, masters degrees, and doctorates.
