Area studies

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.

Area studies fields vary by institution, but courses are commonly broken down by specific countries or regions on their given continents. For example, North American studies may be divided into sub-categories such as American studies in Britain, Canadian studies, and Appalachian studies.
