If nothing else, an advanced degree in the traditional humanities or sciences from a good university is very difficult to earn and proves that one can commit to a difficult long-term goal with an uncertain outcome even at great personal expense.

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.
