In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.
Earning an advanced degree such as a Master offers the ability to increase your skill set and possibly improve your employment chances at the same time. Master programs may be offered online or part-time, so students can pursue their education in a manner that is convenient for them.
