Area studies

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.

Area studies have become more and more common in the academic world since the 1940s. These research fields are intended to assist students with increasing their knowledge and understanding of a variety of diverse populations and regions or countries.
