A master’s degree is a type of graduate degree earned after completion of an undergraduate degree like a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science. Typically, the master’s degree entails about 30 credits of coursework and takes 2 years of full-time study after the bachelor’s degree to complete.

Master’s programs are obtainable at most college institutions that offer bachelor’s degree programs, but deciding on the right school and program is important in accomplishing the most of your post-undergraduate education, so it may not help you well to continue from your BA directly into an MA program at the same school.

Just as we want to open doors for your bachelor’s degree, grant us, First One Education, the permission to look for the right school for your next big step as you pursue with your master’s degree.
