You cannot pursue your education, of course, until you know what your major and degree level will be. And you really cannot or should not decide these things until you know what the job you wish to have requires of its employees. So, take the time to figure out what you want to do and what it will take to get there before you embark on or even start planning your education. Doing so will make your pathway to success much clearer and easier to follow, causing you a great deal less stress and worry in the long run.

Keep in mind that you are in no way limited to just a degree in database administration. You can choose to major in this, of course, but there are lots of other related areas that are just as acceptable and, in some cases, even better choices. Common majors held by professionals in the field as they were pursuing their educations include computer science, computer information systems, and information technology. You can even custom build your own program at many colleges and universities. Pick whatever interests you and will keep you interested long enough to finish your degree program successfully and to start working in the field.

The choice of what degree level is really up to you and to the requirements of your intended career. For many jobs, a simple associate's degree is all that it takes to find success. An associate's degree can generally be earned in as little as two years, often quite inexpensively too since these degrees tend to come from community colleges or online schools, which tend to be cheaper options than tradtiioanl schools. Plus, such programs are generally designed with working professionals in mind, making it easy to balance the demands of a family or another career with your schooling. Associate's degrees usually lend themselves quite nicely to entry level positions in the field, and you can easily, with a bit of effort and commitment, work your way up from these positions.

The vast majority of professionals in the field, however, will hold at least a bachelor's degree. Bachelor's degree are, on average, earned in about four years. They are most commonly earned from traditional colleges and universities at present, though it is becoming increasingly common for them to be earned online. It is thought that in coming years, most degrees will actually be earned online. With your bachelor's degree, you can get started in the field with a higher salary and a higher up, more prestigious position right off the bat. Talk about starting off on the right foot!

The great thing about the bachelor's degree is that it enables you to take your education and run with it. Once you have a bachelor's degree, even if it is unrelated to database administration, you are eligible for a master's degree. Master's degrees vary significantly from one program and/or school to the next, but are often completed in around one to three years on average. They enable you to get the best salaries and positions that the field hast o offer.

The same is true of PhDs, which can only be earned after a person has earned a master's degree. PhDs can sometimes take as long as seven years to complete, so almost every student works, usually in the field, while earning this degree. In fact, most people do not even earn these degrees until they already have an established career in the field. Just know that there are no limits to what you can do education wise and, even more so, to where your education can take you.
