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.
Communication classes help students build a wide array of highly valuable skills that open up a variety of career opportunities in the years to come. These skills are highly sought after across several industries, meaning students may have an unparalleled freedom when it comes to choosing a job.
