Best Master's Programs in Hawaii

Master’s programs require careful consideration for prospective applicants. A master’s degree requires more time and commitment and comes with higher costs and debt than a bachelor’s. A master’s degree usually features a thesis or capstone project and lasts two years.

However, it is possible to boost your career prospects with a master’s degree. There are many master’s degree programs in Georgia, such as those centered around business, teaching, public service, and technology. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data shows that Georgia’s 4,378,430 workers earn a median of $38,340 a year, or $18.43 per hour. Based on estimates from the BLS, the highest-earning residents of the state make approximately $99,700 a year, and the lowest-earning individuals make about $21,390. Those with master’s degrees tend to be near the top of that financial spectrum, though a master’s isn’t a guarantee.
