In most cases, yes. Typically the masters degree comes first. However, it sometimes depends on the program of study. For example, medical school for most individuals follows completion of undergraduate work. In addition, there are some graduate programs where a college or university will combine the two degrees, allowing you to complete them without having to separately apply for each one.
