    Masters course vs. Course for a Master's degree

    Hello!

    I have the following part of a sentence:
    Code:
    benefit from taking a masters course in...
    Would it be better/correct to say "course for a Master's degree in"? Or maybe some third option?

    Thank you!

    A third option would be '...would benefit from taking a master's in sociology.'

    (Some people would prefer to capitalise Master's.)

    The intent is to make it sound professional. I'd like to avoid colloquial phrases and have an official tone, but it's hard for me to discern from the various possibilities because I'm not a native English speaker.

    What do you think?

    In that case, say 'would benefit from taking a Master's degree course in...'
