Preparing for your Master's Degree Program

Come on in and take a virtual seat at my desk. I am happy to meet you!

So you’re looking into master’s degree programs? That’s fantastic! I’m sure you have plenty of questions and who can blame you---this is a huge step and there is a lot of time, money and energy at stake here! By this stage in your thought process you have recognized there is the possibility for an even bigger reward for your dedication.

There is still a lot of decision making to be done. Let me try to help guide you down the right path to figure out what is best for you.

First and foremost, I want you to ask yourself WHY you want a master’s degree. This is your purpose, driving force,  motive behind your decision. This is what will keep pushing you to be successful when you hit bumps along the road, and chances are there will be bumps. A master’s degree is no walk in the park.

Next, I want you to ask yourself do you have the proper educational qualifications. Each school will likely have different things it requires for admission. Take the time to do your research and make sure that you understand what is required. In general, you will need a bachelor’s degree, and while each schools requirement will generally vary, a certain minimum grade point average (G.P.A.).

Now that we have all of that out of the way, it’s time to decide which degree will best help you achieve your goals. There is a vast number of degrees available, so again, doing your research is important. Walsh College has eight different master’s degree, with over 40 different variations to those degrees. Bottom line, you want to be informed and that is why we are here to help!

Whether you are looking to take on a personal challenge, make a career shift, advance in your current career, or even add a couple letters after your name (I know I’m looking forward to being Jason Sweet, MBA) the endeavor is worthwhile. A master’s degree confers upon you the certified mastery of a specific field of study. You are recognized as someone who has achieved a very admirable and difficult task.

Let’s actually talk. I want to help you make this decision easier. I want to help you make your dream come true. Call our office (248) 823-1610, ask for Jason (or one of our other great advisors) or better yet, come visit! Walk-in-Wednesdays are a perfect time to sit down with us and form a plan.
