A master's is an advanced degree that develops your expertise in a specific field of study. While a bachelor's program is designed to give you a broad education in a variety of subjects, a master's degree is more specific to your field of study. You'll explore the subject matter in-depth, which could mean conducting your own advanced research or engaging in hands-on learning opportunities that help you practice applying your knowledge and skills in the real world. A master's degree signifies that you're an expert in your field, with the experience, discipline, and sophistication to handle complex problems and achieve goals. That's why individuals who have earned a master's degree are highly regarded.
