Social Work

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 work programs concentrate on teaching students how to help others in need through community programs, counseling sessions, and support groups. Social workers may spend their time helping families escape the cycle of poverty, supporting individuals as they free themselves of addiction, or counseling people who suffer from mental illness.

Oceania consists of islands of the southern, western, and central Pacific Ocean, including Melanesia, Micronesia, and Polynesia. The term is sometimes extended to encompass Australia, New Zealand, and the Malay Archipelago.
