    masters/Masters/master's level

    Hi,

    I know that we should use "master's" when we are referring to a degree. However, I am curious to know what is the correct form of this word when used as an adjective.

    1-"The university is offering a masters/Masters/master'sprogram in criminology"
    2-"She has decided to pursue her education to masters/Masters/master's level"
    3-"She would like to attend a masters/Masters/master's program in criminology"

    Thanks a lot.

    I am interested to know more people's views on this. This is why I also asked the question here.

    Hi, Ryan! Okay:


    1-"The university is offering a master's degree in criminology."
    2-"She has decided to pursue a master's degree."
    3-"She would like to enroll in a master's program in criminology."

    Informal and common in the US: She wants to get a master's in crim.

    Thanks a lot.
    You're welcome! End sentences with periods (a.k.a. full stops). Or something.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    If you have already posted a question elsewhere and received answers, it is only fair to tell us that you have done so and also to tell us what answers you have already been given.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
