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.
A Master in Sustainable Development explores the interaction between environmental and societal issues, and looks at the importance of sustainability in a rapidly growing society. This pathway can produce future leaders willing to encourage the necessary societal changes.
