Many students who previously earned an undergraduate degree elect to further their education by pursuing a master’s degree. Advanced degrees may be obtained in the original field of study, or students may choose a specialty that builds upon a segment of the earlier, more general educational foundation.
What is a Master in Diplomacy?
