Finally! You have completed your bachelor's degree! You worked hard, studied hard and you did it! So the next question is…”now what?”
It's either going for job experience or going for a master's degree. Let's take a look at the major ways as to how a master's degree is different from a bachelor's degree.
A master's degree is usually a second-cycle academic degree awarded by universities or colleges upon completion of a course of study demonstrating mastery or a high-order overview of a specific field of study or area of professional practice. It is a more detailed, professional and advanced course of study than the bachelor's degree course.
A master's course is different from this in the sense that one is expected to be more professional and independent and the amount of guidance received from the faculty is limited.
A master's degree is, in most cases, more expensive to complete than a bachelor's degree.
A student pursuing a master's degree will have theoretical, as well as practical work to do throughout the course. Most master's degree courses has industry visits and internships as part of their curriculum.
So in short, a bachelor's degree gives the student a base and foothold in the field and subject he has chosen. A master's degree is the advanced form of a bachelor's degree, in that it provides practical know-how on the subject and real experience in the chosen field.
