>>Why?

I am enrolled in a program that inculcates onsite students with distance
students. The distance students are professional tech writers/communicators
who are enrolled in the Master's program for various reasons, and some have
told me that without an advanced degree, there is a *ceiling* over their
heads. Now, as to why that ceiling exists, I do not know. Corporate
attitudes, I suppose...the degree *stands* for something or *proves*
something -- I know in my case, it *educates me and trains me* for
management and interpersonal situations.
