    It depends on what degree that your going into, like if you major in one of the S.T.E.M.s (science, technology, engineering, and math), you'll be guaranteed to make loads of money, but if you major in something like psychology, it'll be harder to find a job other than as a mental health professional. They might look at your completion of that schooling and hire you over someone else who only has their high school diploma and you might also get a higher pay, but depending on what you get your degree in, depends on what jobs are available for you.

    For some fields, it's basically a requirement. For instance, professional librarians are expected to have a MLS degree. No MLS, and no professional librarian job. For others, such as teaching, it's highly useful and will help you to qualify for the higher paying jobs.

    It depends on the degrees involved. Get a degree in biology and you have unlimited opportunities. Then get a master's degree in physical therapy, and you can only look for one type of job. a master's is no guarantee of more earnings.

      What about psychology or nursing? Would you be able to find a job in those careers?

    It does and it increases how much you could make at the job. It may not open a lot of positions up but employers will look at your first before anyone else

    that would depend on what kind of job your masters degree is for.

    Get one in something stupid and no, it won't help.
