The master’s degree is the degree assigned to the second Bologna level, aka “graduate”. As a general rule, a master’s degree requires previous study at the bachelor's level, either as a separate degree or as part of an integrated course. The purpose of a master’s degree is to further your knowledge gained in their undergraduate course by completing more advanced studies and projects. A master’s degree combines theoretical and practical aspects in order for you as a student to obtain a high level of skills in analysis, critical evaluation, or professional application, such as the ability to solve complex problems, think analytically and make decisions. At the Open Institute, master’s degree programs are tailored specifically to the field of work you wish to further yourself in.
