How fun that you are looking ahead to continuing your education!
Once someone has their Bachelor's Degree, they are able to then pursue a Master's Degree. I have my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and then I earned my Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education. For me, it made sense to get my Master's in the same field, but that doesn't have to be the case.
For example, someone could get a Bachelor's Degree in English and then decide to get a Master's in Engineering. It depends on that person's career goals, their current situation, and their career path at their current job. Getting my Master's helped me to earn more money as a teacher and helped open doors for me when I decided to become a principal.
Like most things in life, it depends on so many factors!

Rebecca’s Answer

Thank you for your question. I am glad to hear that you would like to continue your study. I am not sure what major you have taken in your undergraduate course.
Firstly, you may have a few options : if you would like to continue your postgraduate degree in the same subject, you can consider to attend instructor led classes or do research degree, i.e. M. Phil or Ph.D. For later cases, there is not much class work. You would need to choose a topic to do your research and follow a professor to complete thesis. It really depends on whether you would like to attend classes or do research.
On the other hand, you consider to do a Master of Business Administration degree. This course usually focuses on business and management knowledge. If you are interest to take this degree, I strongly recommend you to take it after working a few years. You would have the biggest benefit in this coures.
Hope this helps! Good Luck!

Hi AishaT.

The truth is, you can pursue a master's degree in anything as long as you've met the admissions requirements (including any prerequisite degrees or coursework). In fact, many graduate schools offer flexibility to help students from different educational backgrounds enroll in their program of interest.

Good Luck :)
