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.
Typical area study courses examine a region’s language and literature, history and geography, as well as political and cultural development. Unlike cultural studies, area studies also research the origins and migration patterns of local populations.
