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.
While studying in an environmental studies program, a student may take some basic courses in math, physical science and economics. Main courses of study may include environmental ethics, political institutions and decision making and risk management. Usually a student is required to choose a specialization.
