A masters is earned after students complete an undergraduate degree program. To obtain a masters, you usually need to complete 12 to 18 college courses that often involve completing comprehensive tests and/or a thesis.
An applied arts degree program may be offered for many different fields of study. The main characteristic is that this type of program is not research-based. Instead, it is designed to be vocational in nature.
Distance education or distance learning is a way of delivering education and instruction, often on an individual basis, to students who are not physically present on campus.
