RANEPA currently offers 16 graduate programs incorporating 93 concentrations in the social sciences, economics and the humanities. Enrollment in graduate programs is open to graduates of undergraduate, specialist, and masters programs, or to those who have significant professional experience and wish to continue their education.
What Are Graduate Programs?
A graduate program is the next level of higher education after the bachelor’s degree and provides extensive professional specialization. Graduate degree programs generally take two years to complete. A student can continue in his/her former specialization or choose another field in order to enhance their qualifications with knowledge of another area.
Upon completing the course, the student receives a master’s degree, which entitles the holder to pursue research at the post-graduate level and qualifies the graduate for a career in the chosen field.
Graduates with a master’s degree generally have better professional opportunities, more extensive career options and more competitive compensation than graduates with only a bachelor’s degree.
