2.6 Types of Degrees

leave a comment »

A Masters degree takes 1 to 2 years to complete, which may seem like a great alternative to a five, six, of seven-year Ph.D., but there are some things to keep in mind. First of all, most graduate schools offer only Masters or Ph.D. programs. In the programs that award Masters degrees, you will received your M.A. and then continue on for the Ph.D. Often universities will distinguish these types by calling them terminal versus non-terminal Masters. Students received terminal Masters when they have completed the course of study and graduate at a commencement ceremony. Students receive non-terminal masters in the course of study towards completion of a PhD.
