A masters degree by course work, otherwise called a taught Masters is a degree program that requires one to do written coursework or written exams. You are required to attend classes and possibly tutorials. There are a set amount of courses that one is required to do to fulfill the requirement for a taught masters and possibly a research paper.

A masters by research on the other hand, is one where the student is not required to attend classes, or write exams and submit course work but depending on the program may be required to do labs. If courses are done, these are preliminary courses to give the student foundation, for instance in research methodology. The progress of a masters by research is assessed by a Supervisor, who guides you along the duration of the program.

About $50 K per year.A Masters of Science is a specific type of Masters degree. For instance, I hold a masters degree in psychology (and a Ph.D.).

It really depends on what masters program in psychology you are enrolled in. At the masters level you get to specialize in a particular area of psychology and the course curriculum varies between graduate programs. In general, expect to spend at least 2 years on coursework and writing a thesis or completing an internship to receive a masters in psychology.

The MBA is a terminal degree... as in... it prepares you for an employment soon after you graduate. The MS is a continuing degree... as in... it prepares you for further research (Ph.D). Hence the focus and the way the courses are taught change accordingly. Check http://www.mim-compass.com/About-the-MiM/Difference-between-the-Master-in-Management-and-the-MBA explains it quite well
