Masters degrees are more versatile than doctoral qualifications and have a broad range of professional and academic applications. According to the U.S. Department of Education, three types of masters programs exist research, professional, and terminal. The most popular masters degree types are Master of Arts (M.A.) and Master of Science (M.S.) in a mixture of subject fields.
Geographic sciences can include an education on the computational methods and data structures used to represent, analyze and process geographic information. In addition, geographic science students may have the opportunity to study Earth’s physical features.
