How does higher education work in the US and what do things like Bachelors degree, postgraduate or associates degree mean?

Even though it may seem pretty straightforward in the way they are completed, is it necessary for someone to first complete an associates degree before going into a bachelor's degree? Or what does a minor or major mean? What is the best way to start a journey in higher education in the US?

Does having a postgraduate diploma in education help increase the chances of a PhD holder to get a faculty teaching position?

Hi fellow academics,

I am completing my PhD in few months, and I am looking at the postdoc positions and it's giving me depression. Lack of job security (temporary employment), very low pay, most likely long working hours and overtime. And on top of that, it is a cut throat competition with every application taking hours and days to complete (research proposals, motivation letters etc..). Having done a terrific job in my PhD research in chemistry and publishing 4 papers as the first and corresponding author in reputable journals, plus 4 more as a co-author, I feel that doing more research as a postdoc is really unnecessary for me and I want a stable employment instead. Does taking a post graduate diploma in education boost my chances of scoring a faculty position in any way?

If a young MD is doing Postgraduate Medical Education, does her email end in @utoronto.ca or @uhn.ca?

A classmate from elementary school reached out to me from her @gmail.com. I emailed her Gmail back, but oddly enough, my emails keep bouncing. I double checked the Gmail and it's right.

I see on U of T Medicine's website that she's an MD in "Postgraduate Medical Education". I emailed her Gmail back, but my emails keep bouncing. I want to try guessing her @utoronto.ca or @uhn.ca email. Thanks.

Questions for postgraduate education

Hello, I am a senior at a university and I have been going back and forth on what type of career I want. As of now I am studying to take the LSAT but I just actually learned about forensic psychology and wish to pursue that education further. I still hope to go to law school to gain that knowledge as well. I was wondering if anyone knew of any dual programs where I can get my JD and MS in psychology?

Postgraduate in further education

Hey guys, I'm wondering if anyone here has experience working in further education?

I'm currently working as a software dev and I'm not getting what I'd like out of the job. I always wanted to be involved in education and as time goes on I believe it's where I'd be happiest

There's a number of further ed courses around, I live in Kildare and done my undergrad in Maynooth so it would be my first choice, has anyone studied this course?

Any information on working in further education would be great, thanks

Is postgraduate education worthwhile for actuaries?

Hey everyone,

I am double majoring in actuarial science and economics at a public university in the US and the director of the economics department asked me if I'd be interested going to graduate school in the UK for a year. He told me that if I put in some extra work with him and the rest of the department that I could potentially receive a full ride and earn a masters degree in economics in just a year after finishing my undergraduate degree. Would it be worth taking a year off from taking exams to get my masters or would I just be wasting my time and energy?

Thank you all in advance!

[Academic] This survey is a questionnaire about what's your opinion when it comes to Practice and Theory in Higher Education. (For Secondary Education students and above,Undergraduates,Postgraduates and adults with any kind of education level).

The link of the survey: https://forms.gle/jzB2se3R8uNqJ7ao9

Hello Guys.I would be really grateful if you could help me with a project i'm doing in school by taking this survey. It'll take only 3 minutes of your time.You will need to put your email before you start but the purpose of this is so everyone can take this survey only once.Much appreciated!

  1. First of all, all the data that the people will provide me as well as their personal data (e.g. the e-mail that I'm asking them to fill out before they start taking the survey) will at any time remain confidential and are going to be used strictly only for the purpose of this project. The project that I'm working on right now is about Practice and Theory in higher education and I'm going to present it during a class in my school.
  2. The survey is being conducted just by me. My Reddit username is Radwolf2.
  3. I believe that the maximum time that it may be needed for a participant to fill out my survey is about 3 minutes.
  4. My survey doesn't offer any kind of compensation.

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 72%. (I'm a bot)


> Graduate earnings figures show that up to the age of 30, postgraduates typically earn £9,000, or about 40%, more than those without degrees.

> Universities Minister Chris Skidmore welcomed the "Graduate premium" in pay.

> These latest official figures show a narrowing advantage for young graduates - the annual pay gap closing from £6,000 between graduates and non-graduates in 2008 to £4,500 and a lower proportion of young graduates in "High skilled" jobs in 2018.

> The typical young graduate in 2018 was only earning £25,500, representing a significant drop in real-terms earnings.

> Female graduate earnings average, up to the age of 30, average £24,500, but male graduates average £28,000.

> Graduates with first-class degrees earn £27,000, while those with a 2:2 degree earn £24,000.

Looking to transition into postgraduate forestry education with a non-natural science Bachelor's degree.

Hey /r/forestry,

First time poster here. As the title suggests, I recently graduated college with degrees in Economics and Spanish, but realized through some extraneous experiences that what I really want to do is pursue forestry. I'm looking to get a master's degree for this, since I don't really want to do undergrad all over again, nor do I think that would be a good use of time and money. I have some questions that I thought I might put to you good folks here. Not sure how long this post will end up being, so just be ready in case it ends up being wordy.

My top choice school is North Carolina State, as they have a pretty well-respected program, and I could get in-state tuition there, which is obviously pretty important. However, I'm worried that this might limit me to career options in the Southeastern US. Is this usually an issue for new foresters? I know that forestry and its job opportunities can be pretty regional (it even says so in the sidebar here), so I suppose my inquiry is about the degree of freedom one has to practice forestry in a different geographic region than where he or she was educated. Does it make a big difference?

Secondly, I'm trying to choose between their M.F. program, which is SAF-accredited, and their M.S. program, which is not, but would allow me greater flexibility and possibly greater specialization as well. There are not very many SAF-accredited postgraduate level programs in the US; most of them are at the Bachelor's level. So, my concern is, how much does it actually impact your career prospects to get a postgraduate degree that is not SAF-accredited? I was thinking I could try other places, such as Oregon State, or Colorado State, for example, seeing as how they do have respected forestry schools, but only their Bachelor's level programs are accredited.

The end goal for me is to become a registered forester, so I get that doing an accredited program would fast track that to happen, but I was just curious as to what my options might be otherwise. Anyway, I hope this was coherent and that some of you plantsmen and plantswomen might have some insight for a guy who really honestly hates economics and would rather make a life amongst the trees.
