  1. Hey Webmaster,

    Kindly enlighten me here. What is the difference between M. Sci. Project Management and M. Arts. Project Planning and Management?

    • Hi Pauline,
      I can not explicitly differentiate the two as would satisfy you, but to put it simply, a Master’s of Arts degree is a degree option that is focused on areas such as the humanities. Types of subjects where most Master’s of Arts degrees are available are communications, English, teaching, literature, linguistics, art, and languages. While the Master’s of Science degree option is usually for programs that are more focused on scientific and mathematical subjects. These types of subjects include computer science, biochemistry, engineering, economics, mathematics, and public health; simply the science courses. Students that undergo a Masters of Science degree option can expect to be heavily immersed in either or all in lab work, scientific research, analysis, and evaluation. Students that pursue a Master’s of Science degree typically require a thesis, they must defend their thesis through synthesizing the subjects learned and other information gathered while in Master’s of Art option they don’t need a thesis. I hope this information has been of help to you, if you’ve further queries please don’t hesitate to ask.
