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.

In contrast with the field of theoretical linguistics, applied linguistics aims to address real-world language usage problems. It is concerned with applying the critical study of language to assess literacies and situations that pertain to discourse analysis.
