30 Hours for a Masters in Education


Typically, a Masters degree can run anywhere from 30 to 36 credit hours. However, some will run much more depending on the field of study. For example, my Masters degree is in Organizational Management, and it was 40 credit hours. Some Masters in Business Administration run 46 credit hours. A Masters for a school psychologist can run up to over 65 credit hours. Thus, all I can say is that it depends on the field of study.

What is the difference between the university master's degree and college master's degree?

The words "college" versus "university" can be confusing......especially in the US, where they can mean different things, depending on the state and/or the school(s) in question.It would be nice if things in the US were more like they are in the UK, when it comes to the difference between "college" and "university." In the UK, the university is the large, overall institution; and then each of its constituent parts are called colleges... like the University of London system.And in that (University of London) system, there is no difference: a masters degree is a masters degree.Gratefully, despite the less-clear difference between "college" and "university" in the US, a masters degree, regardless which kind of institution issues it, is the same, from either. A masters degree is a masters degree. Period.In pretty much all cases, a "masters" degree consists of from, typically, 32 to 48 graduate semester credit hours, beyond a 120 undergraduate-semester-credit-hour "bachelors" degree.Though the credits are calculated differently in the UK, it's still the same: first a bachelors degree, and then a masters degree; and it matters, not, whether it's from a school that calls itself a "college," or one that calls itself a "university." In either case, it's post-secondary, graduate-level higher-education that's immediatelly beyond the post-secondary undergraduate bachelors degree.

A masters degree usually requires one year full time work, about 30-33 credit hours, after earning your bachelor's degree (usually considered a four year degree). The doctorate would require about 60 or more credit hours after the masters, for a total of 90 or so hours. The doctorate would require three to eight years to complete, depending on the particular program, the university, and the time the student has to invest in the classwork and dissertation research and writing that follows. The doctorate requires much more work! But it can be done.
