Masters in Jurisprudence and Social Policy

Masters in Jurisprudence and Social Policy

If one studies for a Masters in Jurisprudence and Social Policy, one can expect to study law, research methods, and ethical behavior. One will also learn about current issues in law and social policy and will trace the history of current policies, which will involve a study of governmental policy and court rulings. Numerous exams will be required. By the end of the program, which normally lasts for two years, students will be expected to present a dissertation based on a well-researched, original thesis on a relevant social issue. One may be asked to test or defend his or her thesis as necessary.

Many people who want to study for post-graduate degrees have been choosing the online option. This is a great way for one to get ahead in the world of academia without having to leave a job or force one’s family to move to a different location. Many online Jurisprudence and Social Policy Master’s Programs are just as prestigious as the conventional schools. If one is looking to make a good impression on potential employers, however, many conventional schools with well-established reputations offer online masters and PhD courses that will enhance your C.V.

Over the last several years, there have been more and more openings in jurisprudence and social policy programs. Much of this change has to do with the economy. Many people are pursuing degrees in careers that seem more useful. The truth is that a university educator who has just earned a PhD can find him or herself up for an early tenure. Salaries often start at $120,000 and only rise from there. Once tenured, one finds more opportunity to teach and research. This is a great way for one to make a mark in one’s chosen field.
