I'd like to earn a Master's, without starting from scratch, taking the whole bunch of classes again. In the 1980s, I had been in the PhD physics program at a large midwestern university. After passing the PhD qualifier and spending a year as a technician at a major research lab, I left to go into the software industry instead. There was additional study at another university. As TA, I have even graded homework for graduate level quantum theory. I have earned enough credits, and done the other things, to count for a Master's at most universities - but the university won't give a Master's to anyone who was on the PhD track. I have asked several times over the years. Since that departure from grad school, I've worked in industry and R&D among other things. Wanting to open new career doors, and impress future employers or clients better than with saying "I have the equivalent of a Master's degree", I'd like to know if there are any Master's programs that would take my previous study into account? Perhaps by taking exams, doing some lab research, in just a semester? Currently I live near Univ. of Central Florida, FWIW.
