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.
Social Sciences programs usually include courses in psychology, sociology and ethics that teach students how to channel their natural compassion into useful, effective action that helps vulnerable populations such as abuse victims, substance abusers, criminals and the disabled. Career opportunities include treatment facilities, home healthcare, non-profit organizations and government agencies.
Distance education or distance learning is a way of delivering education and instruction, often on an individual basis, to students who are not physically present on campus.
