Using columns of similar data like degree type

I am preparing an Employee database and would like to add more than one education details column in a form for each employee. Eg: A person must be holding a masters degree. I would like to add details of his masters as well as bachelors.How do i do so. Thank You

It sounds to me like the education details should be in another table with the EmployeeID as a ForeignKey and a separate record for each degree.

As Allan has indicted, when you have a piece of data, like college degrees, and no way to pre-determine how many degrees you're dealing with, the thing to do is to add another table, in just the way he described.
