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.
For higher education, a master is a great option. Programs can last about two years with a requirement somewhere between 12 and 18 courses at the graduate level. Field of study options may vary widely, allowing students to tailor their education to their needs.

The master’s programme provides students with knowledge and understanding of how outdoor studies can enhance learning and contribute to better health, a sustainable development, and an active citizenship.
The programme focuses on experiential learning based on nature, culture, and society. Teaching includes outdoor field-related experiences and learning in and via natural and cultural landscapes. The advanced courses in educational science will help teachers and other educators to understand learning processes and how the society, nature and the cultural landscape can be used as resources for learning and understanding. The programme focuses on experiential learning based on nature, culture, and society, using the natural and cultural landscapes in the outdoors as resources for learning and understanding....

The two-year master’s program in Business Administration - Strategy and Management in International Organizations (SMIO) aims to educate future leaders with good judgment
In the two-year master’s program in Business Administration - Strategy and Management in International Organizations (SMIO) we aim to educate future leaders with good judgment, who can analyze complex problems and make well-balanced decisions.
The program combines fundamental academic knowledge (thinking and reasoning) and experiential knowledge (skills) to prepare students to go beyond applying known solutions to known problems.
The learning pillars of the program are research-based knowledge grounded in rich empirical examples, a focus on critical and in-depth analysis, and communication of results. The program combines the depth of a research master with the rich practical examples and casework-intensity of a more practical master. The program courses, therefore, each lay a solid research foundation in the form of articles and books by both classic and contemporary great thinkers. On top of that, each course provides insights into the workings of a number of international organizations (ranging from Starbucks and Apple to The Red Cross) and empirical phenomena (from CSR and outsourcing trends to business development in East Africa). Students then use their research-based foundation to draw connections, define problems and analyze through for example casework and projects. Each course also practices the students’ communication skills in one or more areas, through the writing of argumentative essays, oral presentations, feedback-sessions, debates and café seminars....

The programme offers a complementary education at the master’s level in applied ethics for students already holding a bachelor’s degree in one of various academic fields, from philosophy to health and technology, or a professional degree.
The programme aims to offer students the opportunity to pursue advanced studies in applied ethics. Applied ethics is a growing interdisciplinary field that studies ethical issues in areas such as politics, medicine, research, technology, and different forms of professional ethics. Questions such as global justice, ethical implications of new technologies in healthcare, and environmental responsibility for future generations are some of the issues that applied ethics deals with. The subject has its disciplinary basis in moral philosophy and ethics, and requires knowledge and expertise in the various fields of application....
