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.
Earning an advanced degree such as a Master offers the ability to increase your skill set and possibly improve your employment chances at the same time. Master programs may be offered online or part-time, so students can pursue their education in a manner that is convenient for them.
