Whether a master’s degree program is full-time or part-time can vary depending on the university’s structure and policies.

Here are some general considerations:

Is a master's degree full-time?

Full-Time Master’s Degree Programs

Note: Many master’s degree programs are designed to be completed entirely online.

Part-Time Master’s Programs

Flexible Schedules

Online and Evening Programs

It is critical to review the specific details the university provides when considering a master’s program. This information is usually available on the university’s website or in the admission materials for the program.

You should also contact the program coordinator or admissions office to inquire about the program’s flexibility and whether it can be pursued full-time or part-time.
