Types of Master's Degrees

Generally speaking, there are two main types of master’s degrees: course-based (taught) and research-based. Course-based master’s degrees are based on structured course modules taught through lectures, seminars, laboratory work or distance learning, while research-based master’s degrees require the student to carry out their own research project(s) in a specialized field of study. Research master’s degrees normally take a little longer than taught master’s degrees to complete.


It is also possible to categorize master’s degrees in terms of subject matter, level of specialization, type of coursework and entry requirements, as you will see in the lists below…
