TYPES OF UNILAG SPGS MASTER’S DEGREE
(a) Academic Master’s
The master of arts (M.A.) and master of science (M.S.) degrees are usually awarded in the traditional arts, sciences, and humanities disciplines. The M.S. is also awarded in technical fields such as engineering and agriculture. Original research, research methodology, and field investigation are emphasized. These programs usually require the completion of between 30 and 60 credit hours and could reasonably be completed in one or two academic years of full-time study. They may lead directly to the doctoral level.
Many master’s programs offer a thesis and a non-thesis option. The degree is the same in both cases, but the academic requirements are slightly different. Students in non-thesis programs usually take more coursework in place of researching and writing a thesis, and they take a written comprehensive examination after all coursework is completed. Students in degree programs that include a thesis component generally take a comprehensive examination that is an oral exam covering both coursework and their thesis.
Master of Arts (M.A)
Master of Science (M.Sc.)
Master of Education (M.Ed)
Master of Laws (LL.M)

(b) Professional Master’s
These degree programs are designed to lead the student from the first degree to a particular profession. Professional master’s degrees are most often “terminal” master’s programs, meaning that they do not lead to doctoral programs. Such master’s degrees are often designated by specific descriptive titles, such as master of business administration (M.B.A.), master of social work (M.S.W.), master of education (M.Ed.), or master of fine arts (M.F.A.). Other subjects of professional master’s programs include journalism, international relations, architecture, and urban planning. Professional master’s degrees are oriented more toward direct application of knowledge than toward original research. They are more structured than academic degree programs, and often require that every student take a similar or identical program of study that lasts from one to three years, depending on the institution and the field of study.
Professional degree programs usually require completion of between 36 and 48 units (one to two years of full-time study), and usually do not offer a thesis option. They do not always require that the bachelor’s degree be in a specific field, but they may recommend a certain amount of prior study or coursework in the subject area.

DISTINCTION BETWEEN A PROFESSIONAL MASTERS AND ACADEMIC MASTERS PROGRAMME.
Professional Masters is a terminal degree while Academic Masters is a step towards a Ph.D. It depends on what you want to do afterwards. If you intend to leave the academic environment or the four wall of the classroom completely, to work in another sector or industry then go for Professional Masters. If you intend to continue in the university/academic environment lecturing, doing research and things like that then go for Academic Masters.
One major difference between the two is that to run the professional masters you do not need a very high B.Sc grade, while the Academic Masters requires good grade to be able to qualify for your preferred programme.
