Michigan Man Has 29 College Degrees

KALAMAZOO, Mich., (UPI) — A 71-year-old Michigan man with 29 college degrees said he now has his sights set on a 30th.

Michael Nicholson of Kalamazoo said he has one bachelor’s degree, two associate’s degrees, 22 master’s degrees, three specialist degrees and one doctoral degree, ABC News reported Tuesday.

Nicholson, whose degrees include educational leadership, library science, school psychology, home economics, health education and law enforcement, said he now has his sights set on a master’s degree in criminal justice.

“I just stayed in school and took menial jobs to pay for the education and just made a point of getting more degrees and eventually I retired so that I could go full time to school,” Nicholson said.

“It’s stimulation to go to the class, look at the material that’s required and meet the teacher and students. It makes life interesting for me,” he said. “Otherwise, things would be pretty dull.”

Nicholson said he has an ultimate goal for his education.

“I would like to get to 33 or 34. I’m almost there,” he said. “When I complete that, I’ll feel like I’ve completed my basic education. After that, if I’m still alive — that would take me to 80 or 81 — I would then be free to pursue any type of degree.”
