Monomaths vs Polymaths: Tribal Warfare Over the Future | High achieving college students: career and educational options | Scoop.it

WIth so many people going online for degrees in addition to those who take traditional classes in school,  I am not sure how much advanced counseling they are receiving about their career path choice and/or course selections so this would be a great article to read before enrolling.Trends are changing and even someone who earned an undergraduate degree in the last five years might have an incorrect assumption about the benefits of the Master's Degree they are considering and the new job possibilities.A Master's Degree requires time and money so it pays to do your homework on this.
