Top 9 Highest Paying Master’s Degrees You Can Get in 2022

Top 9 Highest Paying Master’s Degrees master level degrees are basically like six-year degrees although sometimes they can be done in a shorter amount of times or longer amounts.

9. Science Degrees Master’s

Number nine on the list we’re doing top nine this time is going to be science-related master’s degrees okay so these are going to be a lot of science-related master’s degrees and the thing about science degrees at the bachelor’s level is, unfortunately, they aren’t as good as the other stem related degrees.

However the same thing kind of goes with master-level degrees as well but i would say science degrees at the master’s level are a little bit better especially if you know what you’re doing you’ve done your research and, so that’s why it did make it into the top nine.

8. Speech-Language Pathologist

Next on the list is going to be speech-language pathologist this is usually a master’s level degree it’s a health degree where you help people who have speech and swallowing disorders one thing you want to pay attention to here is debt to income ratio and with this one it’s 2.71 that’s bordering on being on the high side but this one has very high job satisfaction decent pay extremely good demand and that’s why it makes it into the number eight spot.

7. Occupational Therapist

Number seven on the list is going to be occupational therapists now this one is very similar to physical therapist physical is moving more towards the doctorate direction occupational therapist is still kind of in masters-level direction at least that’s what it says on bls although it could be moving towards doctorate as well very very very high job satisfaction here maybe the highest job satisfaction out of just about any career out there it’s seriously.

Like top five 3.2 to 1 debt to income ratio which is a little bit scary but overall, this is still a pretty good one.

6. College Professor

Next on the list is going to be a college professor with a master’s level degree now a lot of the time in order to become a college professor you’re going to have to get a PhD however sometimes you can become a professor with just a master’s degree.

If you go to a community college for instance about a 1.8 to 1 debt to income ratio which is fantastic if you are able to become a professor this is a super awesome gig very difficult to get there there are just not that many spots open.

so a lot of people will try to become professors then they fail and so they kind of just wasted their time if they spent too much time going after the degree if they’re not able to get a job in that field.

5. Master Of Business Administration

Next on the list is going to be a master of business administration this is of course a business related master’s degree very common degree these days this one can be great i will say though that it seems like schools are giving this one out left and right it seems like there’s like double majors that have a master’s MBA mixed with just about any other type of degree,

And so you really want to be careful what school you get your mba from and make sure that you’re getting your money’s worth.

4. T.E.M. Degree Master’s Level

Number four on the list is going to be technology engineering and mathematics related master’s degrees and, so this is you know a little bit better than the science related master’s degrees when it comes to stem science is definitely the least good out of the four however generally speaking if you get a technology engineering,

Or mathematics-related master’s degree you are going to be good to go there’s a lot of opportunities out there for you i would say in some circumstances you don’t need to get a master’s degree a bachelor’s is fine, but it really isn’t going to hurt all that much if you get a master’s.

3. Data Science

If you want to be a fully-fledged data scientist you have to get a master’s and that’s one of the reasons why i included it on this list and data science is fantastic everywhere how much you get paid is ridiculously high lots of opportunity job satisfaction very high in the technology industry. the future outlook looks amazing just nothing to hate here everything to like
