Arts

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

Arts studies incorporate the history, culture, and practice of a variety of different art forms. Examples of topic areas include sculpture, film, painting, musical instruments, theater, and photography. Programs often combine classroom learning with hands-on work.
