A Master of Arts (MA) degree can offer students the opportunity to further their undergraduate studies or add to their education in a complementary field. Depending on the chosen topic, an advanced degree can take one or more years to complete.

What is an MA in Science Studies? This interdisciplinary research degree combines broad social, philosophical, historical and scientific interests. Students may study how science and technology interact with each other and with societies, the language of science, how scientific rhetoric influences politics, creative processes, conceptualizing and researching new ideas, cooperative research and the philosophy of science.

Graduates often excel in conducting thorough research, a skill that can be used in many types of career positions. They can learn presentation skills that help them effectively communicate information about complicated subjects. They may also apply advanced analytical techniques with the ability to synthesize complex data patterns to reach defendable theories and conclusions.

Given the diverse options in this type of program, the number of subjects pursued may impact the final cost. Other variables can include whether classes are taken through distance learning or on campus and the country in which the school is located.

Career opportunities as senior researchers at science institutes are often available after graduation. A person who earns this type of degree may choose to pursue a doctorate before accepting a position as a social scientist, university professor or social engineer. Others may find positions as technical writers or publishers for journals or other types of periodicals that specialize in their scientific fields of study. Those with interests combining science and administration may work as executive directors or program administrators for governmental scientific research facilities.

Universities around the world may offer different options for taking advanced classes, including distance learning or courses at local campuses. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
