I'm in the process of finding a Masters program, and in that research, have come across testimonials of graduates talking about their experience in a particular program and school. Frankly, they have me worried in terms of time/dedication. One of them talked about how stressful (yet rewarding) it was, and another basically talked about kissing their entire social life away (no time to go to beach or spend time with kids). Is this pretty accurate, especially for someone holding down a full-time job teaching as well? I did go through teacher credentialing alongside sub teaching (not regular teaching), and it was moderately difficult but not something that I considered STRESSFUL or where I had to basically shut off from the world. Would you say that a Masters (in education) is harder, more difficult than a credential program?
