Technology Studies

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.

The incorporation of technology into modern society has often been the cause of political and philosophical debate. The main concern is whether technology truly helps or harms humanity. Some argue that overuse of technology is harmful to the environment, while others believe it is a necessary facet of human development.
