Two Master’s degrees?

Watching a rerun of the 2012 Poker Championships, my man saw this. We had a ‘robust discussion’ about where the apostrophe should appear.
Any suggestions?

AA: That is correct.  Singular: master’s degree.  Plural: master’s degrees.

      Fixed!

    According to the Associated Press style, the apostrophe is correct.

  3. Mike says

    Agreed! This one is possessive as well. It’s the degree of the Master, or the Master’s degree.
