The Master of Science (MSc) usually is given for successfully achieving postgraduate programs with a science or technical point of convergence.

Sociology programs provide an in-depth look at the functions and organization of society. Topics such as class, crime, race and gender, and culture are usually studied during a sociology program. Courses in economics, history, and philosophy may also be required.
