Education

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.

In its broadest sense, education can be defined as any formative experience that has some sort of effect on an individual. This consequently can affect the way the individual, or student, thinks, feels, or acts. Pedagogy is an important term in education that refers to the methodology of teaching.  

Can any other region can match the variety and dimension of Africa? With imitable history, landscape and cultural contributions, hardly any regions offer a study abroad encounter that is more challenging or more satisfying in terms of studying.
