i don't think it matters bro. they show really old people getting bachelors on tv commercials for colleges. plus online makes it easier to not interact with others.

Good for you bro. You should get it tbh. Many white collar jobs have it as min requirement. As to answer your question there is no max age for a masters. People do it straight out in college, in their mid/late 20s and many in their 30s.

If you are really fast you finish your master at 23/24. I started my master at 24 three years ago but I'm doing two masters. Starting at 27 is late and at 30 is a little too late I guess, because you need to do it while also doing part time work. But if the degree is worth it and you love the field, go for it.

You should also see what your academic ambitions are and what you want. If you just want a mid to high level job you can stop with a bachelor. If you want to do a phd you must do a master.

I feel like
"How old is too old for a masters?" can be split up into a technical answer and a useful answer
technical answer: No age is too old for a masters. Get that knowledge!
useful answer: Between 35-45 I'd say

I know plenty of older people who went back to school and got higher education purely because it was a life goal or they wanted to test themselves. But the thing is they don't ever do anything with it. They just wanted the certificate as a trophy of sorts. To know that they could do it. But to get a masters degree THEN make it useful and beneficial to you is something else entirely. I think finishing a masters before age 35-ish is the best all around answer. Because then you have a few years to get into the workforce and work a good job and get paid some good money. A few years and you got yourself a house and a car and can live comfortably. You can't be a 50yo just finishing their masters and then think you are going to conquer the job world. You are just too old at that point. Men make the bulk of their money in their 40s. Starting a Masters at say 48 is just asking for everyone to call you a fucking dummy.
