A master’s degree is an advanced academic program that can take about two years of full-time schooling to earn, provided students have already received a bachelor’s degree. Earning an MA may help students achieve their educational goals and set them on the path toward accomplishing their professional goals as well.
Some learners may choose to educate themselves, although most education is conducted under the guidance of a teacher or instructor. Higher education is often supervised by a professor. Education can occur in a wide variety of settings, either informal or formal.
