Masters Degree

This academic degree typically adds 1-3 more years of intensive, specialized study on to a bachelor's degree, which is nearly always required before admittance to any master's program. In fact, it is this strategy of admitting only those who already have advanced knowledge in their chosen field of study (through their bachelor's degree and professional work experience) that makes master's degree programs so powerful.


Most delve into theoretical topics, analysis, critical evaluation, and problem-solving to make graduates better thinkers and prepare them for the real-world. Many programs are also heavily research-oriented, resulting in a student thesis prior to graduation.
