    study a career

    Is it correct to say..."You can go to a university to study a career?"

    Is it correct to say..."You can go to a university to study a degree?" or "To study for a degree?"

    Is it correct ot say..."Study a career?" "Study a degree"?

    Are all these correct? If not, which ones?

    Thank you The Alien!

    Hi, Alien!

    Each of your examples feel awkward to hear. Most people would understand what you are trying to say but there are better ways to say it!

    An individual goes to a university to earn a degree. Studying is a necessary function of earning a degree. To 'study a degree' is not common usage.

    An individual in a university would explore requirements for entering a career field. After determining that the requirements can be met the student would begin his/her studies in order to earn the required degree for his/her chosen career.
