    Master's degree

    "UsingEnglish.com invites you to explore Concordia University's Master of Education Programs that allow you to earn your Masters degree online, in as little one year, from the comfort of your own home."

    Is it really correct to write "Masters degree"? Shouldn't it be "master's degree"? And why is "Masters" capitalized?

    Thanks!
