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.

International studies is considered to be an interdisciplinary field that utilizes information from multiple frames of reference such as cultural, social, political, ethical and economical points of view. This can help students evaluate issues that can affect populations globally.
