Jump to: navigation, search

Master of Professional Studies (MPS or M.P.S.) is a type of master's degree concentrated in an applied field of study. MPS degrees are often interdisciplinary. While Master of Arts and Master of Science degree programs tend to focus on research and theory, Master of Professional Studies tend to emphasize practical skills designed for current and aspiring professionals including post-bachelor and post-graduate students and often require some amount of fieldwork or internship to complement classroom learning.

Admission to the MPS program typically require documentation of professional experience and competencies in addition to an earned undergraduate degree or postgraduate education and satisfactory standardized test scores such as the Graduate Record Examination.

The Master of Professional Studies is not to be confused with the Master of Public Service offered by the Clinton School of Public Service at the University of Arkansas, which has the same abbreviation.
