    Abstract

    The master’s degree occupies an important and changing role in the spectrum of academic awards. This chapter discusses the origins of
    the master’s degree and the manner in which this degree, possibly more than others, has changed in its character, purpose and
    orientation. It also explores the growing popularity of the master’s degree, its shifting utility, and the controversies and tensions
    associated with the degree. In addition, this chapter documents contemporary trends in master’s degrees in education and illustrates the intellectual framework underpinning the development of the Master of Education (International) at Charles Darwin University (CDU) in Northern Australia as an example of an
    innovative postgraduate coursework degree.
