The Benefits of a Masters

A Master degree program is an opportunity to further advance your education. Many people complete a post-high school curriculum that meets the bachelor's degree level. At this point, many students enter the workforce and begin working in the career they've selected during their bachelor's degree. However, there's more to learn and that's where the Master comes into play. When making the decision to enroll in a Master program, students must consider their overall goals. One of the key benefits to a Masters degree is that the student is able to learn at a higher level and on more advanced subjects. As a result, the individual is then able to apply for higher levels of employment, earn more in their position, or even work in more advanced fields. Often, employers encourage employees to work towards a Masters as it shows the student is dedicated to his or her field.

How Long Is a Masters Program?

Every program is slightly different in terms of duration. Generally speaking most individuals can complete a master's degree program in 18 to 24 months. However, many others attend just part time, which can mean going for a longer period but with fewer classes taken every few months. For some fields, such as advanced healthcare and law, it is common for these degree programs to take up to 36 months, as a full time student.

When choosing a university for a Masters program, the curriculum will outline the specific courses required. It's important to note, though, that most programs allow for some customization to ensure that the student is able to get the education he or she needs to truly fulfill his or her desired learning.

Types of Masters Programs Available

The Masters programs available range significantly, mainly because virtually all types of bachelor's degrees can continue with additional coursework to complete the Master. This includes areas such as:

  • Business Management, including focuses on financials, human resource, and marketing
  • Engineering and technology
  • Law and regulations
  • Biological and medical
  • Social sciences
  • Arts and humanities

Many universities offer a Master that will allow the student to focus on his or her desired area of study. If you are looking for such a program and cannot find it at one university, another one will likely offer it.

Costs

The cost of a Masters program will differ significantly from one school and region to another. Universities tend to charge students more for these more advanced courses than for bachelor's degrees. However, this is due to the more advanced knowledge, higher levels of technology needed, and more advanced teaching methods. As a result, global costs for a Masters program may be very affordable to very expensive.

Individuals interested in enrolling in a Master degree will want to ensure first that he or she has all required degrees. Then, it is possible to find a program designed specifically for the area of study he or she wishes to explore to further a career. Read more about Masters programs here.

Why choose this program?

Is the world moving closer together or is it drifting apart? History as a discipline has been increasingly reaching out beyond the limits of the nation-state in order to study this question.

By focusing on international and transnational history from the mid-19th century to the recent past, the program offers a broad and global historical perspective on political, cultural, social and economic processes both between and beyond nation-states. It includes a combination of closely integrated core and specialized courses. Over the first three semesters, students will be thoroughly prepared to write their final master's thesis through a practically oriented “horizontal” course module.... [-]

Public History

The public history program is addressed to all the BA graduates, not only in history, and even not only in the humanities, who would like to conduct the research about and promote the public uses of history. Public history has been operating since the 1970s as a subdiscipline of history, but also as a separate academic discipline. It is called the history "for the people, by the people, with the people, of the people" and deals with all the aspects of history outside the formal education (also academic education). It operates for many years at the universities worldwide and enjoys considerable popularity among the students.

The history itself concentrates on examining the past (aiming at answering the question "how was it there?") while public history conducts research on how the knowledge about the past is present in the social consciousness and how it is (and may be) instilled in this consciousness, with the central question of "what do (did/will) the people know about how it was?" It focuses on the historical memory, which is rather marginal in the "traditional" history research. The courses from the public history program concentrate on the ways of shaping the historical consciousness (or collective memory) - both in the context of its theoretical framework and mechanism (including e.g. politics of history) and in various practical ways (tools/techniques) of influencing this memory and consciousness, starting from collecting and processing the testimonies of the past, through speech-writing and preparing other texts promoting the historical knowledge,...
