Default Need Advice to do Masters Online without Bachelors

Dear friends,
I am looking for some guidance and seek some experts help.
I havent done bachelors, and i am 21 Years old.
I have though some professional experience as well, however i want to know, can we do MASTERS without Bachelors degree?

Or is there any Such degree, for 1 Year, and then you can do Masters.

I seek some helpful advice. As i dont want to do Bachelors and stuck for 3 Years, and then do Masters. It will take much time.

Furthermore, i am Abroad in Middle-East, so looking for Online Study.

I am looking for a TOP UNIVERSITY, a Respectful Accrediated, knowful university. to get the Masters degree.

I wanted to ask, how is Online Study, we interact in a very Enjoyable way, meaning to say, we can easily understand things, interact ith different students.

Please advice

Thank You

Hello Ricky -

Welcome to the forum!

You must complete an undergraduate (bachelors) degree before attaining a graduate level (masters) degree.

Fortunately for you at age 21 you have your whole life still in front of you and able to accomplish this task in just a few short years.

GOOD LUCK!!

Yeah. That being 21 is what hurts. . . at 40, Aspen's program would be an option with 15 years work experience.

I believe there's Herriott-Watt that has a similar program as well, but they probably have fairly stringent requirements that most 21-year-olds couldn't meet.

To boot, the under-25 crowd benefits more from a traditional brick-and-mortar setting. Not only are the social life and support resources readily available, but the mentoring from the professors may prove invaluable.

I think we need a little more information to help you. Do you have any type of credit that might transfer into a program? Perhaps you have an Associates Degree?

Without either of these I am afraid you will need to reconsider your timeframe.

Default A Canadian teen successfully completed Heriot-Watt MBA at 16!

Hi -

I SURE don't recommend this for everyone. It's just one for the record books!

A couple of years ago, a brilliant Canadian high-school student completed the Heriot-Watt MBA program at 16 or 17. I believe he may have been 13 or 14 at the start of his program. (Naturally, he had the full support and influence of his parents in signing up!)

His academic prowess was extraordinary. By 16 or so, he had sailed through high school and was about to get an early start at bricks-and-mortar University.

As I remember, his was an immigrant family, who had come to Canada some years earlier from the Middle East. Around the same time, I read (in a daily newspaper) the story of a a Polish teenage (girl) immigrant, whose family had landed in Toronto 18 months previously. At that point she had known NO English whatsoever, "not even yes and no," to use her own words. By hard work and dedication to learning, a year and a half after her arrival, she won her high school's senior English prize!

Default Ricky - please give site for Pearson University!

Hi Ricky -

I was unable to find a Pearson University site. Please give us a URL.

Are you possibly confusing it with www.vue.com ? This is a testing site, Pearson VUE (Virtual University Enterprises). They are a large and respected organization, but they are NOT a University and do not claim to be one. Their business is administering tests, not teaching courses. They do testing for widely diverse organizations, including Excelsior College, various Medical Boards, the American College, Association of Financial Professionals etc. etc.

If you have another site in mind, please give us the URL. By the way, I do not recommend the "quantum leap" you have in mind, either. The value of any LEGITIMATE degree is most often proportional to the amount of work done to qualify for it. All academic work takes time; graduate work also takes preparation. That preparation - plus the knowledge and skills you will obtain in the process - is what the Bachelor's is for.

Cheers

Johann

Default Ricky -- this is a little confusing!

Hi Ricky -

Axia College (Regionally Accredited - North Central) handles U. of Phoenix's 2-year Associate Degree programs. How does this relate to your Master's-without-Bachelor's program! After Axia, you'd need 2 more years of study, just to complete your Bachelor's!

If you DO want a 2-year Associate Degree, Axia is a good, though rather expensive choice. At $265 per credit, the degree will cost around $16,000. You could get a Regionally Accredited Associate Degree on-line MUCH cheaper through Community Colleges -- start surfing! One you might like, at around one-fifth the price is www.maricopa.edu Alternatively, there are Nationally Accredited (DETC) alternatives for associate degrees like www.ashworthcollege.com and www.pennfoster.edu as well as www.aju.edu and www.colsouth.edu

If you were living in the U.S. my first (and least expensive) Regionally Accredited recommendations for on-line completion of ANY level of degree would have been www.excelsior.edu www.tesc.edu and www.cosc.edu. These are STILL good possibilities for you - I know www.vue.com handles overseas testing for EXCELSIOR. Take a look at these and a bunch of others before you decide.

There are still some more inexpensive options for a Regionally Accredited undergrad degree on-line. Two of the lowest-cost are Peru State (Nebraska) at around $115 a credit (last I looked) and Louisiana State University at about $229 per 3-credit course. The URL's are www.peru.edu and www.lsu.edu

I still urge you to reconsider trying the direct-to-Master's route. Your time studying for an undergraduate degree would be well-spent and rewarding, not wasted!

I wish you every success.

Johann

I'd recommend that you consider Western Governors University.

I completed both my Master's and Bachelor's through examination, thesis, and projects within about 2 years.

It cost me less than $20K for the entire program.

You will ONLY be successful if you are self-motivated. You can not succeed in this type of program unless you are willing to study on your own with the resources provided and perform above the rubric requirements consistantly.

They are regionally and nationally accredited (DETC, NWCCU, WASC, and NJATE) in the United States.

You can reach them online at www.wgu.edu.

I have NO affiliation with Western Governors University except as alumni.

Jacob
