Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


What Does MA Degree Stand For?

A master’s degree comes in two primary forms: Master of Arts (MA) and Master of Science (MS), both offering advanced knowledge beyond a bachelor’s degree. The main distinction lies in their focus areas: MA emphasizes arts and humanities, whereas MS leans toward scientific and technical subjects.


What are the subjects for MA in Nepal?

Universities and colleges typically grant Master of Arts (MA) degrees in subjects such as Languages, History, Geography, Philosophy, Fine Arts, and Social Sciences. Interestingly, some of these subjects can also be offered as Master of Science (MS) degrees, resulting in an overlap between the two. This means that students may have the option to pursue a particular subject as either an M.A. or an M.Sc., depending on their academic interests and institution’s offerings.


How long is the MA course in Nepal?

To earn an MA degree in English, students must complete a total of 20 courses, with each course carrying 3 credits. These courses are spread across 4 semesters. The syllabus is structured into two categories: “required” and “electives.” While the “required” courses are mandatory, students have the flexibility to choose courses from the “elective” groups. Each semester, students are expected to complete 5 courses, amounting to a total of 15 credits.


What is the difference between Master of Arts and postgraduate?

A Postgraduate Diploma usually takes about a year for full-time students to finish, whereas a Master’s degree typically requires 18 to 24 months of full-time study. This extended duration for a Master’s program is because it covers a more extensive range of course modules compared to a Postgraduate Diploma, thus demanding a longer commitment from students.


How many years is a masters degree?

On average, most master’s degree programs span approximately two years from the beginning to completion, which is roughly half the duration of earning a bachelor’s degree.


What is the fee for MA in Nepal?

The cost of pursuing an MA in English program affiliated with Tribhuvan University (TU) at the Central Campus typically falls in the range of NRs. 50,000 to 60,000.
