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.

Economics and administration is a discipline that focuses on both macro and micro economics. Experts are trained to understand both how individual actions and mass trends affect the economy. Many specialize in particular subject areas such as public policy, business economics and consumer behavior.
