A master’s degree is typically more focused than a bachelor’s on a specific field of study. Whereas a bachelor’s degree may be focused on building a student’s understanding of the general field, a master’s degree focuses on developing expertise.

If aspiring students already have a career they are committed to or know the career that they wish to enter, then acquiring a degree in professional studies may be what they’re looking for. What is a Master in Professional Studies? An MPS degree is a program that is hyper-focused on a specific career. For instance, students may specialize in subjects like human rights, international relations, and emergency management; therefore, an MPS degree can be highly adaptable and suitable for established professionals.

The benefits of degree programs typically vary based on degree focus, but an MPS degree does provide similar benefits despite varied specialties that may be of interest both professionally and personally. For instance, an MPS degree has a general focus on management; therefore, students develop skills like communication, conflict resolution, and time management.

A Master in Professional Studies may not have identical cost or even similar time requirements across all universities and locations. While graduate degrees typically take one to two years to complete, it is important to reach out to specific universities for information.

Those who pursue and earn a Master in Professional Studies may know that the careers vary as much as the degree’s specializations. For instance, those with an MSP degree may find careers as human resource directors, marketing managers, communication specialists, and event management consultants. Obviously, most careers depend on both the level of experience and education, but graduates with an MSP may find greater opportunity than those without.

As prerequisites and cost vary by institution and location, it is important to research any potential university to ensure a well-rounded decision. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
