A Masters degree is an academic degree awarded to individuals who successfully denote a higher level of expertise. There are two main types of Masters - taught and research.

More than just a study of one religion, theology generally covers a variety of religious and philosophical traditions, seeking a better understanding of the divine. While it can be studied in order to enter a particular religious order, it also provides students with an understanding of people’s beliefs in general.

Students who complete a part of their degree in Asia are growing in numbers. Currently, the second and the third biggest economies are in Asia. Without limitation, students have described their time in Asia as the best experience of their lives. Today, three of the four most populated countries of the world are in Asia: China, India, and Indonesia.
