Students who have earned a bachelor’s degree can continue their studies by seeking a Master of Science (MSc). This degree is most commonly a two-year program that seeks to provide graduates with advanced mastery of a science-based field of study.

What is an MSc in Science Studies? A degree program in science studies can focus on one of many disciplines. Programs might have an emphasis on such fields as biological sciences, engineering, medicine, physics, mathematics and pharmacy. Study is typically a mixture of lectures, research and fieldwork. A large component of the program is commonly a long-term research project that enables scholars to explore advanced material in his or her field.

During the course of the program, participants often develop better communication skills by expanding vocabulary, a positive trait in personal and professional life. The student could gain confidence in his or her ability to comprehend complex scientific principles and to expose specious reasoning, which could lead to professional advancement.

Expenses incurred while enrolling in and completing a master’s program vary from school to school. Low-residency programs are sometimes available for this program and might lower overall costs. Each interested individual should fully investigate current fees and tuition tiers.

Graduates with a master’s degree in science studies often compete successfully for positions at mid-level on up to senior and executive levels. Employment can be found from a variety of sources, including the private and public sector and from large as well as small companies. Academic careers are often open to graduates. Depending upon the chosen area of focus, potential jobs might include pharmacist, biologist, teacher, lecturer, engineer, computer designer and chemist.

Many countries offer an MSc in Science Studies in traditional settings, and through online programs. To learn more, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
