Area studies

A Masters degree is an academic degree awarded to individuals who successfully denote a higher level of expertise. There are two main types of Masters - taught and 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.
