    college/ graduate school

    "My mom raised me and my brothers alone," I offered hesitantly.

    "You go to college?" she demanded.

    "Yeah," I replied. "Graduate school, too."


    Do I understand right, that college is a place where you can get bachelor's degree and graduate school is where you get your Masters?

    Re: college/ graduate school

    College is for undergraduate degrees, University is for graduate degrees. All of the universities that I know of offer undergraduate degrees as well as graduate degrees. If a school is referred to only as "College" then it only offers graduate degrees. You could refer to a university as graduate school as well, so you are correct.
