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.
The goal of an environmental studies program is to prepare students to solve environmental issues. This may include working in the government to create new laws and policies, working in the legal system to fight for environmental causes or working in the field to protect natural resources.
