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 are a scientific branch that deals with observations, understanding and predictions of natural phenomena. It is a diverse field and includes disciplines such as biological science, physics, chemistry, Earth science and astronomy.
