Hi, I looked around if this wasn't covered before but didn't find anything, so I started this thread. My question if simple. Where in the world (including and especially Poland) is a Masters Degree important. When browsing various jobs on different sites, I noticed the highest educational requirement for anything was a bachelor degree. So whats the point of a Masters?

Ok, but someone with a bachelor degree and 2 years experience will be more likely to be employed than someone with a masters degree and 0 years experience.

Bachelor degree holders who teach foreign languages, especially English, are employed in Polish schools but when there are two candidates, and one of them has a Master`s, he/she will be chosen by the head teacher, even without any previous experience. Simply speaking, 3 years of studying for a Bachelor compared to 5 years for Master makes some difference, doesn`t it?

Master holder will be chosen even though he/she gets a higher salary.

Merged: English Master's degree in Poland (moving to Europe from USA)

Hello everyone!

My name is Chris, I'm from the United States and am new to the forum. I'm planning on starting a Master's Degree in Europe and was wondering which universities in Poland offer English speaking Master's degree programs. All the best!

Sorry, should have cleared that up. Political Science, International Relations, International Trade Law or English Literature.

I suppose it was. Can't fault the guy for making an enormous and strenuous effort.
