Adam Helweh found this one and posted it on Facebook (which is where I found this). Reading this, it makes me glad that I spent the time earning my MSPTC (Master’s of Science in Professional and Technical Communication), and it has helped me earn a better income and advance my career. But what would it mean to get a PhD or other doctorate degree in the working world? That is, if the Master’s degree is what is the new Bachelor’s degree, does that mean a doctorate is the new Master’s?
In the US, it’s expensive enough to try to earn a Bachelor’s degree, and that’s much cheaper than a graduate degree (knowing the cost per credit at many graduate schools compared to undergraduate schools, it’s tremendously more), how is this going to help the workforce ultimately? It definitely helps the technical communication world, I think, to some level bring up the quality of work that’s out there. But there are plenty of talented people with undergrad degrees that can do the work, too.
Time will tell how this will all impact the workforce at large.
