To pursue an academic career — teaching and conducting research at the university level — a doctorate degree is essential in nearly all fields of study. Teaching at a community college may require a master’s degrees and professional work experience. For those teaching kindergarten through 12 th grade, graduate degrees are highly recommended.
Often, graduate degrees help people advance further in their careers and earn more over a lifetime. Some fields — such as physical therapy — require graduate degrees. Others, such as engineering, encourage them. Students may pursue a graduate degree immediately upon completing a bachelor’s, or they may return to graduate school later.
