Education

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.

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.  

Europe is, by convention, one of the world's seven continents. Comprising the western most point of Eurasia, Europe is usually divided from Asia by the watershed divides of the Ural and Caucasus Mountains, the Ural River, the Caspian and Black Seas, and the waterways connecting the Black and Aegean Seas.
