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 field of political economy differs from traditional economics because it emphasizes the effect of policy and regulation on financial markets and industry. Students who wish to specialize in this field may develop strong critical and analytical thinking skills while learning about issues that impact nations around the world.
