A master's degree is the next level up from a bachelor's degree in the hierarchy of post-secondary degree programs. Masters degrees are usually one to two-year that take place after the student has received their bachelor's degrees, so this usually involves a total of five to six years in post-secondary studies at a university. The most typical types of masters degrees are Master of Arts (MA), Master of Science (MS) and Master of Business Administration (MBA). Under these degree programs are several different types of subjects available.
