American children enrolled in the American education system advance to secondary school.

Students who have obtained a bachelor’s degree can continue their education by pursuing one of two types of degrees. This is usually a two-year degree that is highly specialized in a specific field. Students are sometimes admitted to a master’s degree program only if they have a bachelor’s degree in a closely related field. Certain courses of study are only available at the graduate school level in America. The most notable of these are law, dentistry, and medicine.
