My Master’s degree

1.

A Master’s degree is the most commonly taken postgraduate
qualification
1
. It is a second
-
cycle academic degree awarded by
course of study demonstrating
mastery of a specific field of study or area of professional practice.

This
means you will usually study after a related undergraduate Bachelor
2
,
but before a higher research degree such as the PhD (Doctor of
Philosophy).


2.

Most Master’s degree programs require that students should
write a Master’s thesis, or an extended research paper. Depending on
the field, a Master’s degree thesis may entail conducting a thorough
analysis of the literature or a scientific experiment.

With
in the area studied,
M
aster's graduates are expected to
possess advanced knowledge of a specialized body of theoretical and
applied topics; high order skills in analysis, critical evaluation, or
professional application; and the ability to solve complex
problems and
think rigorously and independently.

3.

Master

s degrees are commonly titled using the form 'Master of
...', where either a faculty (typically Arts or Science) or a field
(Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, Business Administration, etc.) is
speci
fied.

The two most common titles of
M
aster's degrees are the Master of
Arts (MA/M.A./A.M) and Master of Science (MSc/M.S./S.M.) degrees;
which normally consist of a mixture of research and taught material.

The Master of Arts is offered in most Arts and Hu
manities
subjects and in some areas of the Social Sciences. It stands for
Magister
Artium
, which is Latin for ‘Master of Arts’.

the traditional Arts and Humanities also award Masters of Arts degrees.
These are usually programs th
at reflect upon (or theorize about)
technical topics. Examples could include Computer Science courses
studying digital artwork or Medicine programs focusing on ethics and
medical history.

The Master of Science is the standard Masters qualification for
taught courses in Science and Technology subjects.
As a general rule
this includes most ‘STEM’ (Science, Technology, Engineering and
Medicine) subjects.

It stands for
Magister Scientiae
, which

is Latin for
‘Master of
Science’. Also

some social sciences and some business,
consulting and management courses fall into the MSc category.
