Is a Masters degree useful in the world of optics?

I am trying to decide if I should ask about going for my doctorate next fall. I am currently working on my masters and taking the same courses as a PhD student in optical sciences would. I am trying to assess the benefits of getting my masters if my plan is to eventually get a PhD in the same field. #graduate-school #doctorate-degree #masters-degree #optics #science #career-counseling

Hi Sara!
Glad to know you are pursuing Optics. I have been in this field for a while now and just love it, isn't this field fascinating?
I would like to encourage you to go ahead with your PhD as your value as a doctorate will be many folds more to any industry you join in the future. Try to get any internships in the related field while you are doing your masters, that will help you a lot.
Hope this helps!
Best wishes,
Rimlee..

Having a master's degree may be very good for your job prospects. In fact, there are some jobs that outright require them. If you're looking for work as a statistician, political scientist, biomedical engineer, or speech-language pathologist, a master's degree is often expected.
