The Benefits of a Masters

A Master degree program is an opportunity to further advance your education. Many people complete a post-high school curriculum that meets the bachelor's degree level. At this point, many students enter the workforce and begin working in the career they've selected during their bachelor's degree. However, there's more to learn and that's where the Master comes into play. When making the decision to enroll in a Master program, students must consider their overall goals. One of the key benefits to a Masters degree is that the student is able to learn at a higher level and on more advanced subjects. As a result, the individual is then able to apply for higher levels of employment, earn more in their position, or even work in more advanced fields. Often, employers encourage employees to work towards a Masters as it shows the student is dedicated to his or her field.

How Long Is a Masters Program?

Every program is slightly different in terms of duration. Generally speaking most individuals can complete a master's degree program in 18 to 24 months. However, many others attend just part time, which can mean going for a longer period but with fewer classes taken every few months. For some fields, such as advanced healthcare and law, it is common for these degree programs to take up to 36 months, as a full time student.

When choosing a university for a Masters program, the curriculum will outline the specific courses required. It's important to note, though, that most programs allow for some customization to ensure that the student is able to get the education he or she needs to truly fulfill his or her desired learning.

Types of Masters Programs Available

The Masters programs available range significantly, mainly because virtually all types of bachelor's degrees can continue with additional coursework to complete the Master. This includes areas such as:

  • Business Management, including focuses on financials, human resource, and marketing
  • Engineering and technology
  • Law and regulations
  • Biological and medical
  • Social sciences
  • Arts and humanities

Many universities offer a Master that will allow the student to focus on his or her desired area of study. If you are looking for such a program and cannot find it at one university, another one will likely offer it.

Costs

The cost of a Masters program will differ significantly from one school and region to another. Universities tend to charge students more for these more advanced courses than for bachelor's degrees. However, this is due to the more advanced knowledge, higher levels of technology needed, and more advanced teaching methods. As a result, global costs for a Masters program may be very affordable to very expensive.

Individuals interested in enrolling in a Master degree will want to ensure first that he or she has all required degrees. Then, it is possible to find a program designed specifically for the area of study he or she wishes to explore to further a career. Read more about Masters programs here.

Master 2016. For students to be competitive in the 21st-century global marketplace, they need strong scientific knowledge and abilities. This newly enhanced specialization in Science blends content with pedagogy so you can learn science in the same way you will teach the subject matter in the classroom—through inquiry-based learning that promotes hands-on and exciting educational experiences. The program aligns with the five core propositions of the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS), the National Science Education Standards (NSES), and the standards of the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), and offers you the knowledge you need to effectively teach science in today’s classroom. Emphasis on Practical Strategies - Engage in authentic scientific collaboration with fellow teachers and science faculty through discussion boards, labs, and classroom exercises. - Use both real and virtual laboratory experiences to simultaneously learn content and pedagogy. - Learn the latest technology and research and how to adapt it to your instruction. - Gain practical strategies to help your students achieve on state and national tests. - Excel in a program that was developed in collaboration with national leaders in science education and Walden faculty. Learning Outcomes Walden’s fully online M.S. in Education program centers on the strategies that are intended to lead to greater student achievement and teacher success. The program’s specializations teach advanced skills that are designed to improve student learning. Each specialization area encourages educators to put their new skills to the test in actual classroom and school settings and to continually challenge the results of teaching and learning. Graduates of this program will be prepared to: - Treat students equitably, recognizing the individual differences that distinguish one student from another and adjusting their practice based on observation and knowledge of their students’ interests, abilities, skills, knowledge, family circumstances, and peer relationships. - Create multiple paths to the subjects they teach, through their knowledge of how the subject is created, organized, linked to other disciplines, and applied to real-world settings. - Manage and monitor student learning to create, enrich, maintain, and alter instructional settings to capture and sustain the interest of their students and to make the most effective use of time. - Draw on knowledge of human development, subject matter and instruction, and understanding of students to make principled judgments about sound practice. - Contribute to the effectiveness of the school by working collaboratively with families, the community, and other professionals on instructional policy, curriculum development, and staff development.
