Tom’s Answer

Simeon, you would want to start with a standard four-year degree with a major that interests you and then earn your Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree. Then, you would want to follow that up with a master's degree and once you have obtained that, then you could find a doctorate program that would meet your needs. That is the basic overview of how to do it although there's a lot of related information that's important. I suggest that you do a Google search using the words from your question to acquire more useful information. Best wishes. Tom
