How to Get Into & Pay for College


Do I need a Bachelor's degree to get a Master's or Ph.D?

QUESTION: I have some questions about the different kinds of degrees I can earn. Do I need to get my Bachelor's degree? Or, can I just go straight to getting a Master's degree? Signed, Fast Track

Dear Fast Track: It would be nice if there were an express track to earning a Master's degree before a Bachelor's degree. Unfortunately, to obtain a postgraduate degree such as a Master's or Doctoral degree, you need to earn a Bachelor's degree.
