31+ year olds: do you have a Master's or doctoral degree?
Earned my Playa Hata Degree (PHD) at 29 yrs of age. Good yes?
Why yes, I do!
Please cite your sources in APA.
Three classes away from my MS
Master's in Learning and Behavior Disorders.
BS in Aviation Technology, MA in Professional Psychology, CAGS in School Psychology, working on PsyD currently.
Are you at MSPP? I went to GIPP!
I already have an MA & planning to begin taking classes toward a M.Ed. this Spring.
It is hard to believe that 28 percent of adults over 31 have an advanced degree. Maybe that is just a bias of SOH users
Masters in Aeronautical Science (Space / Management)
Our son has three. Way to go Erik Michael.
Masters in Chemical Engineering.
MA, MS, MFT. Just about to start my PhD, then my dentist said I need $25,000 worth of work done! I didn't know that was even possible! And my teeth look and feel fine! But I guess I can work with addicts if I look like I have meth mouth one day! Ugh!
No...just a BA. I have been toying with getting my masters
We have a 10yr and a 13yr Retirement degree.
BA, BS, MS, MBA
Working on the MBA now
Oh is that what I was supposed to be working towards? My bad. Love college though. Just not enough to continue to go into debt for it. Like the former US president, I too am a C student.
Doctor of Philosophy
BA in chemistry and an MBA
And happy to be one!:)
Bs in bio. Masters in env science. Phd actual stands
For piled higher and deeper. So I prob will skip that.
Not a day of college.
Masters in educational technology
Big time nerd. Jk ;-)
I'm be getting a Masters in Geology as soon as the kids are old enough that I can go back to school.
Sheldon would make so much fun on you ;)
I have been accepted to a doctoral program, but that was about the time Dad took a turn for the worse, so I deferred.
Sorry to hear that. Hope if you do go back you have good mentors!!!
No worries. I am where I need & want to be.
Show off ;-)
Oh.. Both degrees are in physiological optics. Also I have an O.D. Retired now.
Umm, no. I don't even have a HS diploma...
That's the spirit!! Jk ;-)
Lol @ the people trolling the demographics.
As soon as I read your ⬆️comment, I went directly to "RESULTS", and was immediately struck by the "Age" filter:
We have no child prodigy's!...
I just find it funny that only 94% with a Masters and 93% with a Doctorate answered "Yes". Apparently we have some people with honorary degrees...
...and that's my two minutes of SoH for today...
Ender, that's what I found funny as well.
Im an undergrad drop out and wouldn't have it any other way. I saved myself a lot of money and was still able to follow my dreams. I love my career path and am proud of where I work and what I do and the pay couldnt be better!
Two Master's.. Both in education.
I said yes, but technically I am working on it right now. I will get a Master's in professional Communication in the spring.
Masters. Instructional Design & Development.
MPH with a concentration in epidemiology.
Yes in BS
Are you still paying off your loans?
Two year associates degree, 31 years as an accountant, retired at 54. Sweet!
Not yet, but I work with an incredibly smart, beautiful, driven 29-year old who does have her doctoral degree.
Make your move!
She's also happily married and straight. ;)
That said, it is quite nice to be able to at least see her and work with her every day....even if that's it. :)
Undergrad degree. A few years ago I considered getting my MBA but my wife wanted one, so we paid for that one instead.
Y'all made the right decision. Too many dudes at business administration conferences anyway. ;-)
Masters plus 36 post grad credits. Got accepted into a phd program, but had two boys. Stopped my education to save for theirs.
s/b post grad credits.
Wow, this was an extremely targeted question. Yes, I have a master's degree. I'd like to get a doctorate someday whenever I pay off the loans from this one first haha so never :(
You never know. I got mine when I was 51. (Makes for a short career afterward, though.)
Yeah, I'll do it someday. Not necessarily for career advancement, just because I want to.
But, working on it :)
Doctorate in immunology.
Cool. I don't think I knew that about you!
Smart women get a follow!
You must make bank. Cool!!
Not even close. It's not too late to start though, so maybe someday.
I had a delightful student who started his OD degree at age 61. After all of his children had doctorate degrees, he decided it was his turn. It was a joy to teach him.
Doctorate in genetics & developmental biology. No masters.
Wait wait wait.
All this time I could have been calling you Doctor Susan??
Either that or Dr. FooFoo. (I have a NIOSH sweatshirt with that printed on the back; a gift from lab mates when I graduated.)
Or, Dr. Sweetie, according to a boyfriend around the same time. That was in reply to a waitress who insisted on calling
me "Sweetie" about 20 times while serving us lunch. The under-his-breath comment was "That's *Dr.* Sweetie to you, honey."
In real life, only 2 other people have ever called me "Dr.": My proud dad, and one of my oncologists.
As in little bunny FooFoo?
As in my little brother had trouble saying "Susan" and it came out "FooFoo." And stuck. Various members of my family have called me that all my life. Then my brother grew up, had kids, & told them to call me that. Then I made the mistake of telling
one of my lab colleagues that story, & she told everybody in the lab, & that's when I got the sweatshirt. Strangely, she's still one of my best friends, 17 years later.
Too bad you can't delete this now ;)
My grandmother got in my face when I was an infant. I said some baby gibberish to her and she declared, "She called me Gook!"
So, guess what name she got stuck with for the rest of her life, even into my adulthood? :)
Congrats, Dr. FooFoo!
4 years was enough for me
