A bachelor's degree is an undergraduate degree in which you study a subject of your choice at an academic institution, and is commonly known as a college degree.

The post-baccalaureate status is designed for applicants who have earned one or more degrees at an accredited institution and seek another undergraduate degree, wish to enter a non-degree seeking program or wish to further their education by taking courses in varying fields of study.

A master's degree is a degree that is given to a student by a college or university usually after one or two years of additional study following a bachelor's degree.
