Grammar Girl explains degree spelling

I see this written incorrectly all the time.

Grammar Girl: "Bachelor's Degree" or "Bachelors Degree"?
A bachelor is not just a guy who eats out a lot, but also a person of either sex who has earned a type of degree from a university or college. Think of the degree as the property of the bachelor, with the apostrophe-s indicating possession: It is a bachelor's degree. 
The same is true for a master: He or she earns a master's degree.
