Yes, in order to qualify as a Master’s degree-seeking student, applicants are required to possess a Bachelor’s degree.  An Associate degree is not sufficient.


Do I need to take the GRE or GMAT for a Master’s degree?


UoPeople does not require students to submit GRE/GMAT score(s) in order to gain admission to a Master’s degree program.


Is a Master’s degree worth it?


Masters’ Degrees are beneficial for a number of reasons, including higher earning potential.  According to a U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics study in 2018, those with a master’s degree earned nearly $12,000 more per year than those with a bachelor’s degree only.
