Basically, we’re going to go over the Top 9 Master’s Degrees of 2022 in the United States USA, Master level degrees are basically like six-year degrees, although sometimes they can be done in a shorter amount of time or longer amounts.
9. Master’s Degrees in Science
Number nine on the list, it’s is going to be Science Related Master’s Degrees. Okay, so there are going to be a lot of science-related master’s degrees. And the thing about science degrees at the bachelor’s level is unfortunately, they aren’t as good as the other STEM-related degrees.
However, the same thing kind of goes with master-level degrees as well. But I would say science degrees at the Master’s level are a little bit better, especially if you know what you’re doing. You’ve done your research. And so that’s why it did make it into the top nine.
8. Master’s in Speech-Language Pathologists
Next on the list is going to be Speech-Language Pathologists, this is usually a master’s level degree, it’s a health degree where you help people who have speech and swallowing disorders, one thing you want to pay attention to here is debt to income ratio.
With this one, it’s 2.7 to one that’s bordering on being on the high side, but this one has very high job satisfaction, decent pay extremely good demand. And that’s why it makes it into the number eight.
7. Master’s in Occupational Therapist
Number seven on the list is going to be Occupational Therapists. Now, this one is very similar to the physical therapist, physical is moving more towards the doctorate direction, the occupational therapist is still kind of in master’s level direction at least that’s what it says on BLS.
Although it could be moving towards doctorate as well, very, very, very high job satisfaction here may be the highest job satisfaction out of just about any career out there, it’s seriously like top five 3.2 to one debt to income ratio, which is a little bit scary. But overall, this is still a pretty good one.
6. College Professor
Next on the list is going to be a College Professor with a master’s level degree. Now, a lot of the time in order to become a college professor, you’re going to have to get a Ph.D.
However, sometimes you can become a professor with just a master’s degree, if you go to a community college, for instance, about a 1.8 to one debt to income ratio, which is fantastic. If you are able to become a professor, this is a super awesome gig very difficult to get there, there are just not that many spots open.
So a lot of people will try to become professors then they fail. And so they kind of just wasted their time. If they spent too much time going after the degree if they’re not able to get a job in that field.
5. Master’s in Business Administration
Next on the list is going to be a Master’s in Business Administration. This is of course a business-related master’s degree, a very common degree these days.
This one can be great. I will say though, that it seems like schools are giving this one out left and right. It’s it seems like there are double majors that have a Master’s MBA, mixed with just about any other type of degree.
So you really want to be careful what school you get your MBA from, and make sure that you’re getting your money’s worth.
4. Master’s in Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics
Number four on the list is going to be Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics-related master’s degrees. And so this is, you know, a little bit better than the science-related master’s degrees. When it comes to STEM Science is definitely the least good out of the four.
However, generally speaking, if you get a technology engineering or mathematics-related master’s degree, you are going to be good to go. There’s a lot of opportunities out there for you. I would say in some circumstances, you don’t need to get a master’s degree bachelor’s is fine, but it really isn’t going to hurt all that much if you get a Master’s.
3. Master’s in Data Science
next on the list number three is going to be Data Science. data is one of the hottest things out there right now. I think this is one of the ones that I’m the most bullish on now this one has a 1.5 to one debt to income ratio, which is ridiculously low, and there’s no surprise there.
Now, one thing that I will say about data science is a lot of people think they can become data scientists without a degree or with a bachelor’s degree. Usually, if you want to be a fully-fledged data scientist, you have to get a Master’s and that’s one of the reasons why I included it on this list, and data science is fantastic everywhere.
How much you get paid ridiculously high, lots of opportunities. Job satisfaction is very high in the technology industry future outlook looks amazing. Just nothing to hate here. Everything to like.
2. Physician Associate
Next on the list is going to be a Physician Assistant now known as Physician Associate and this is basically somebody who can prescribe and diagnose under the supervision of a doctor 2.1 to one debt to income ratio here.
Very nice. You start off making about six figures a year you can get much higher than that you have the option to pick up overtime if you want to make even more money, tons of jobs out there are extremely flexible, you can very easily switch your specialty just a lot of things to like about Physician Associate fantastic career fantastic degree to get.
1. Master’s in Nursing
Next on the list number one, edges out Physician Associate just by a tiny little bit and that is Nurse Practitioner with a 1.3 to one debt to income ratio, which is the lowest on the entire list.
So this is a master’s level nursing degree extremely flexible, you can do so many different things with it relatively easy to switch your specialty as well at least if you can compare it to a medical doctor lots of opportunities, medical tends to have very high job satisfaction, just a lot to like about this one.
