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.
Composition studies focuses on different forms of writing, stages of the writing process and varying forms of the written product (conclusion, thesis statement, quotations, etc.). Composition studies are usually part of core studies and may be required of freshman level students.
