Natural Sciences

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.

Natural sciences studies teach how the scientific method can be applied to the study of nature and the universe. There may be many opportunities for specialization in a specific branch such as Earth science, physics or chemistry.

The Middle East is the birthplace of several current major religions and influential empires from millennia past. Scholars and graduates get the benefit of immersing themselves in these cultures and gaining a deeper understanding of one of the world’s most vibrant regions.
