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.
When studying sport, students usually choose between focusing on the business and strategic elements of sports or the physiological aspects. Those studying the former typically have the potential to coach or manage professional sports organizations while the latter aid in physical training.
