A master (also called master’s or master’s) is an academic degree awarded to those students completing a second year graduate level, which has one to three years.
The masters seeking to expand and develop skills to solve discipline problems, interdisciplinary or professional, and also the person providing the basic tools that enable a researcher in a specific area of science, arts or technology, enabling it to further theoretical and conceptual knowledge in a field.
Masters degrees have a duration of approximately 2 years (part-time) or 1 year (full time). Therefore, a master’s degree is equivalent to having university studies at 6 or 7 years, since it is necessary to obtain the degree or degree (4 or 5 years) to access this level. The following university degree is the doctorate.
The term master is confusing since it is also used to refer to additional training courses formal ones, among which are both called “title proper” qualifications provided by universities and training centers run by non-university. Such teachings are not approved and therefore not eligible for validations or agreements. To avoid this ambiguity, Spanish universities often call official master’s degree or master’s degree to graduate degree programs approved by the Bologna Process.
There are different types of masters degrees, depending on area of studies that owns the program.
* M.S.P. stands for Master of Public Health.
* M.C. (M.Sc.) stands for Master of Science and is awarded to those who satisfactorily complete graduate studies in any scientific or technological area.
* M.I. (M. Eng.) Stands for Master of Engineering.
* M.A. stands for Master of Arts.
* LL.M. stands for Master of Science of Law.
* M.Ed. stands for Master of Education or Teaching.
* M.A.E. (MBA) is an acronym for Master of Business Administration.
There are other variations, but those above are the most universal.
