Master’s degrees can be an excellent opportunity to advance your knowledge—or gain the necessary knowledge and skills to pivot into a new field, among a range of other benefits.

On Coursera, learning “stacks” together so you can build toward the educational outcome that's best for you. For instance, you can enroll in pre-approved courses, Specializations, and certificates to first determine whether the subject is a good choice for your unique needs and goals. If you decide to apply to the full master’s program and are admitted, the progress you’ve made may count as credit toward your degree.
