How long does it take to earn a professional degree?

Well, If you go to school for 4 years then you earn a BA, which is to me the lowest professional degree higher then the 2 year A.A which is just general. Then if you go to school for 2 more years to equal 6 you earn a Masters which is the middle professional degree, then if you go at the least 2 more years to equal 8 years you can get a doctoral degree, but in alot of careers that require a doctoral degree require you to go to a specific school such as law school, or medical school. Then maybe a internship is required. It's alot, but the pay is GOOD!

Well, it depends on the field, and also what one means when you say a "professional degree". That being said, when one thinks of a "profession" they are likely referring to a physician, dentist, attorney, or some other learned profession. The typical course involves 4 years of undergraduate education (B.A/B.S) in a given major. The next path involves investigating which profession one wishes to enter. That being said, some programs have prerequisites that have to be completed in order to be considered for admission.

The average length of schooling for a "profession" ranges from 2 years for a Physicians Assistant to 4 years for a physician or dentist. Law school is 3 years I believe. For physicians, one has to, in most cases, do 1 year of post graduate medical education (training after earning a MD degree) to be eligible for licensure in most states. But in reality, to practice, one needs to have completed a residency and be board eligible or board certified. A residency lasts between 3-7 years.

The Difference Between

What is the difference between an undergraduate and a graduate degree?

Undergraduate and Graduate Degrees

In general, Associates and Bachelors degrees are considered undergraduate course work, while the Masters and Doctoral degrees are considered graduate course work. Graduate course work - in most cases - is very specific and particular to one field of study. Thus, the graduate study is advanced course work which follows undergraduate course work.

An undergraduate degree is awarded for the completion of 2 years (associates) or 4 years (bachelors) of college level study.

A graduate degree is awarded after attending graduate school. A graduate degree is a masters degree, which generally takes 2-3 years of graduate school after college.

Undergraduate coursework is a basic educational foundation within a given program of study following high school. The course work includes a general cluster of knowledge that promotes a well rounded education. Thus, the student is exposed to a variety of areas, not just their chosen field of study. These areas would include general education courses to include, English, Math, History, Laboratory Science, courses in Humanities, and Social Sciences to mention a few. These would be tightly coupled with the students Major Requirements and Major Elective Requirements.

In the UK...In the UK, the descriptors as to what constitutes an Undergraduate / Bachelors Degree and a Graduate (Master's or Doctoral) degree is set by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) in their document "The framework for higher education qualifications in England, Wales and Northern Ireland".

In it they specify that a Bachelors Degree is a level 6 course in the Framework for Higher Education Qualifications (FHEQ) system.

Any course above this level is a graduate degree or equivalent (e.g. Master's Degree or Postgraduate Certificates at level 7 or Doctoral Degree at level 8).

They also outline the differences between the two levels of qualification and the expected requirements and outcomes of having studied at the differing levels.

Please see the related links section for further information.

In the USA...In the USA, information on the difference between varying levels of tertiary (post high school) education is given on the US Department of Education website.

In general the following applies:

In the US there are 6 main levels of post high school education:

  1. Associate Degrees
  2. Bachelors Degrees
  3. First-Professional Degrees
  4. Master's Degrees
  5. Intermediate Graduate Qualifications
  6. Research Doctorate Degrees

Level 1 and 2 count as undergraduate courses of study. Above this level the qualifications require an undergraduate degree or period of study as a prerequisite and so are termed graduate courses.

Both Level 3 and 6 qualifications commonly lead to the title of Doctor, however level 3 qualifications are professional doctorates such as those in medicine e.g. MD, whereas level 6 doctorates are research or academic doctorates e.g. PhD.

In general in the USA:
  • Undergraduate courses involve study in Freshman-Senior courses with the aim of gaining a Bachelor's or Associates Degree.
  • Graduate courses involve study for a higher level qualification which has an undergraduate degree as a pre requisite requirement.

What is adiabatic calorimetry?

Adiabatic calorimetry is used primarily for the study of thermal hazards and the consequences of a maloperation

during a process, for instance a misfeed

or loss of cooling. This is because on larger scales the effective natural cooling rates are negligible in comparison to heat generation, and many large process vessels can therefore be considered to be adiabatic.

An adiabatic calorimeter is designed to simulate the thermal behaviour of larger scale chemical reactors, especially when studying uncontrolled and run-away

reactions.

What are the benefits of Integrated MBA?

The following was written by Wharton College Pennsylvania. This should help.

Why an MBA

The MBA is not an end in itself, but a means to an end. It is a degree designed to give you the ability to develop your career to its fullest potential, at an accelerated pace. What will you get out of an MBA? Aside from a powerful life experience, the MBA degree should supply three main value propositions: Skills, Networks, and Brand.

Skills

These include the "hard skills" of economics, finance, marketing, operations, management, and accounting, as well as the "soft skills " of leadership, teamwork, ethics, and communication that are so critical for effective management. MBA students acquire these skills inside and outside the classroom. Since MBA programs attract people from very diverse industries and cultures, a program should be able to leverage these differences and translate them into learning opportunities.

Networks

An MBA degree program offers access to a network of MBA students, alumni, faculty, and business and community leaders. This network can be very useful when beginning a job search, developing a career path, building business relationships in your current career, or pursuing expertise outside your current field. For example, entrepreneurs need access to capital, business partners, vendors, and clients. Arts-related businesses need access to funding and strategic management in order to position themselves to be relevant in the marketplace. Global businesses need access to local business cultures as they expand their enterprises to new territories.

Brand

The MBA degree is a recognized brand that signifies management and leadership training. The particular school and type of MBA program you attend also have brand associations that can help open doors based on the school's reputation. The strength of a school's brand is based on the program's history, its ability to provide students with technical skills and opportunities for personal growth, and the reach of its alumni and industry network. A powerful brand can give you the flexibility to make changes throughout your career.

Is job experience or a graduate degree more important to an employer?

Experience or Degree More ImportantIt depends on the job. If the Master's Degree is needed to get a license or certification, as is often the case with teaching and I believe social work, then you need to get the degree right away. As a recruiter, I have always valued work experience more than a degree. I went to night school for my Master's and I found that most of my classmates were experienced professionals who were getting the degree because they were in a state job that required it, or they were getting it to get more money. Also, many companies have tuition reimbursement programs and you may be able to get tax breaks if you are going to school for something in your field.

Here are more opinions and friendus from other FAQ Farmers:

  • In countries like UK (Britain), USA, Canada and some other places experience does tend to be more important that a degree or university education. In other countries, a degree is more important and experience is secondary. First the person needs to have proper qualifications (i.e. degree) and then experience comes as a secondary matter.
  • As others have indicated, it depends on the job and the organization. In some cases, if one doesn't have the degree, one does not get as much as interview. In other cases, the employer puts many more qualifications in the job "requirements" than he/she is really requiring. Particularly if one has a lot of experience in a particular area, it generally doesn't hurt to apply for a job that requires more education than one has. Be sure to emphasize how extensive your experience has been and how well you can apply that experience to the benefit of the employer. There are some questions that applicant should be prepared to answer: 1) Are you willing and able to get degree required? On your own dime/time? 2) Why do you think such a degree is important (or not important)? 3) Why don't you have the required degree? 4)Do you think that your not having degree will affect your relationships with others in the job situation - both those who do and those who do not have the degree? Applicants may want to bring up and address these issues on their own if the interviewer doesn't bring them up. If you can answer them in a positive way to allay interviewer's fears that you are not qualified enough. If possible, check with a friend with the degree about possible problems. This could also be a good reality check.

The Difference Between

What is the difference between 'Mr' and 'Master'?

Traditionally, "Mister (Mr)" was a title used to address married men, while "Master (Mstr)" was used to address unmarried men.

Over time, the use of "Mister" expanded to include unmarried men, and "Master" became restricted to boys and young men who had not yet entered society.

Even this is quite rare today, and is mostly used in extremely formal written correspondence.

But if the acronym is really PA, then it means the person isn't really a doctor at all, they are a Physician's Assistant. In many states PA's have limited prescribing privileges and can do some of the simpler diagnostic work. But they have not been to medical school, and don't have the depth or breadth of training of a real doctor, so shouldn't be referred to as doctors.

What one should write in an application form to questions like 'What are your career objectives or goals'?

The truth.

Definitely the truth. Never lie. You should write all your objectives/goals in life. Pretty much your dreams. What you wish to achieve in life.

For example: I personally would like to become a pharmacist, so when asked "what are your career objectives or goals?" Well, my career objective is obviously to become a pharmacist, and this has been my goal for quite some time. I am interested in the health care program, because in the future I would love to help the community, those who need my help in general.

Something along those lines.
