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.
Students who participate in an arts studies program learn different aspects about a variety of art media, and they also get a chance to expand their own creativity in areas such as visual art, music, and theater.
