What is the correct punctuation for this phrase? I've seen it done in a variety of ways and I don't know which one is correct.
a. Master's degree in Journalism
b. Masters degree in Journalism
c. masters degree in journalism
d. None of the above
Thank you for your help!
How about when you just say, "I'm doing my master's."
Is that correct? Or is it, "I'm doing my masters."
Thank you again!
Anonymous:Doesn't an apostrophe s signify ownership of something? Is a master's degree a degree belonging to a master? And what about masters' degrees? I vote for no punctuation.
Anonymous:Actually, yes it does mean a degree pertaining to mastery of some subject. Think about the other interpretation. Is it reasonable to think of masters degree as a plural?
