For many of us, an advanced degree is a necessity. The field in which we want to work requires a master's degree, or more advanced degree, for licensure or certification. For example, in order to practice as a lawyer, psychologist, librarian, or teacher, an advanced degree is required.For other careers, however, the need for an advanced degree is not as clear cut.
