Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject.
Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.
Those who study economics first and foremost learn the differences between microeconomics and macroeconomics. Microeconomics involves the behavior of individual markets, such as households and firms, and their interactions. Macroeconomics, on the other hand, involves looking at the entire economy as a whole.
