What can I Study in USA

What can I study in USA as an international student is a question that always comes to mind when you prepare to go USA for higher study. Here you will find all the available degrees in USA for international students.

Associate’s Degree:

Associate’s degree programmes are offered by two-year colleges or four-year colleges or universities and require 2 years to complete. Most community colleges have an open doors admissions policy, but specific programmes (technical specializations, nursing and most transfer programs) often involve some sort of selection procedure. In general, there are two types of programmes leading to the associate’s degree: 

  1. predominantly vocationally-oriented programmes that prepare students for immediate employment at a level comparable to that of an MBO diploma.
  2. transfer programmes, which can be vocational or general in nature, but contain enough liberal arts subjects (such as English, science, social sciences, etc.) to allow students to transfer to the third year of a bachelor’s programme after obtaining their associate’s degree.
Bachelor’s Degree:

Bachelor’s degrees are awarded by a four-year college or university at the end of an undergraduate programme lasting 4 years, and usually expressed in a minimum number of credits. Most of all the study programme consists of general subjects (liberal arts, Engineering, Business Administration etc.) and electives, a major and sometimes a minor. There is usually a progression from a broad base towards increased specialization, although 4 years of courses are not uncommon. At some institutions, fourth-year students must take research methodology and complete a research project or bachelor’s thesis.

Master’s Degree:

All courses taken after a bachelor’s degree are provided at a graduate school, usually (but not always) at a university. Individual departments determine admissions to graduate programmes. All candidates must have a bachelor’s degree, and there are also some additional requirements, depending on the selectivity of the institution and/or the specialization. These additional requirements can relate to the GPA, prerequisite subjects, entrance examinations, knowledge of a second language, etc. A master’s programme can take between 1 and 3 years, depending on the specialization and the number of credits required.

PhD / Doctorate Degree:

Doctorate degree programs, also known as Ph.D. programs, are the highest level of degree program available. And to get admission into a Doctorate degree program, the individual must holds a master’s degree certificate. Completing a PhD program usually takes 3 to 6 years. It involves the completion of a dissertation and a major research project. Medical-related doctoral programs may have student’s complete hands-on clinical hours with real patients during the final years of the program.
