What is a Master’s degree?
Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees, new in Germany, are based on the English system of academic degrees that build on each other. As a rule, the Bachelor is the first qualification, and the subsequent Master involves deeper knowledge of the same subject. Currently, Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees are usual in 80 percent of countries worldwide, making these academic qualifications internationally comparable.
After gaining a Bachelor’s degree, you have two choices: start your career, or go directly on to a Master’s course. Most Bachelor graduates go straight into employment, but that doesn’t mean their academic career has to stop there. You can always take a Master’s course later, either during a break from work, or part-time alongside your job.
A Bachelor’s course gives you a solid grounding in a subject, leading to a first academic title after six to eight semesters. To gain a Master’s degree, expect to add two to four further semesters. The Master’s course follows on from the Bachelor, with students specialising in a certain field and gaining an academic qualification that also entitles them to go on to a doctorate.
