Social 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.

Social sciences focus on the study of social relationships and human society. Courses within social science prepare students for a wide number of careers that deal with people or systems in public, private, and nonprofit sectors.
