Being a celebrity often entails working unusual hours for tapings and shoots, so their everyday routines would look quite different from that of a regular person's. This often makes it hard for TV personalities to pursue other endeavors, like getting formal education. Going to school requires you to stick to a certain class schedule, which is not impossible but partially difficult to accomplish for stars.

Getting an undergraduate degree is hard enough to do in a jam-packed schedule of an artista, but these stars took it further and decided to pursue further studies to get a master's degree. Below, we list down five celebrities who pursued higher education.

Celebrities who hold a master's degree:
