Would you call someone with a Masters in Science a Scholar?

    No. A scholar is someone who makes their living at academic studies.

    Getting the MS is not a living, it's a means to getting a job to make a living. But it's not the living.

    Now if someone gets an MS and then goes off to study the effects of the tse tse fly on the Greenland economy, then they are scholarly in the study and can be called a scholar.

    Source(s): I have the MS (and PhD) but my work was applied, not scholarly work.

      Agree Mary, that's why I wrote "Now if someone gets an MS and then goes off to study the effects of the tse tse fly on the Greenland economy, then they are scholarly in the study and can be called a scholar." They are working at the subject they studied for the MS.
