What is a Master's Degree?

If you have a bachelor degree then you can pursue a master's degree. A master's degree program is awarded to those who complete an academic program in a specific subject, usually lasting between one and three years.

What are the benefits of having a Master's Degree?

  • Paves the way for improved career opportunities with a greater chance at being hired for a high level position of significant responsibility plus excellent chances for advancement.

  • If you have even higher education goals, a master's degree is a necessary and useful preparatory step leading to doctoral studies.

  • A higher level of education often results in higher earnings.

What is required for admission to a Master's Degree program?

In order to gain admission into a master's degree program, one must have a bachelor degree. For some master's degree programs, a bachelor degree in the same subject as the intended master's program is required, or at least a bachelor degree in a closely related subject. For other master's degree programs the subject of the bachelor degree is irrelevant.
