A master's degree is a postgraduate academic degree. A master's degree prepares students to lead or manage. A master's degree also prepares a person for a range of pursuits through specialized study of a field.
A Master of Arts or Master of Science degree is a graduate-level course of study that typically requires more rigorous and focused work than an undergraduate degree. Students may pursue this education to deepen their understanding of topics learned in undergraduate school or to train for a specific career field.
