    Question "be" or "have"?

    Hi teachers!
    Question-1 Is "I'm an M.A" correct or "I have an M.A?
    Question-2 We say "I am a graduate". Do we also say "I am a masters"?
    Question3- Should that be masters (plural) or master (singular)?

    "I have an M.A"
    "I am a graduate" YES.
    Do we also say "I am a masters"? NO
    Question3- Should that be masters (plural) or master (singular)?
    It is not a plural noun - it is the possessive 's'
    It is often said as, "I have a master's from such and such a University",
    where master's is short for 'a master's degree from...'
