When looking at the Pa Program Profiles in NYC I see that some of them award a Bachelor’s degree upon completion and others a Master’s degree. The program length is the same (28 months or so), but the tuition cost is more than double for the Master’s. So for someone like myself who already has a Bachelor’s degree, and has to take all of the science prereq’s before applying anyway ($$$), would it matter if I just got another bachelor degree or would it be better to do the Master’s? If the designation of Pa is the same, what are the differences in the programs and in the future of the field as far as educational requirements go?
Also, is it frowned upon to take the science prereq’s at a community college (given a strong overall application)?
Any advise or clarification would be greatly appreciated!!
