School Selection Criteria

Consider the following when looking for schools with master's degree programs:

  • Students should ensure that a school not only offers programs in their chosen field, but at the level they desire.
  • Tuition for credits towards a master's degree is often more expensive than for an undergraduate degree.
  • Many students seek financial assistance to meet their tuition costs; financial assistance can take the form of loans, grants, assistantships and teaching positions.
  • Although material and instruction style vary by field, most courses in graduate school tend to have fewer students.

Master's degree programs are available at many colleges and universities that offer graduate study. Typically around two years in duration, these programs can prepare students for careers in a vast number of professional fields.
