    I am guessing with the first you mean MSc - Master of Science in Scotland anyway. It is a Master's Degree. A Master's Thesis.

    degrees are properly written as:

    master's
    bachelor's
    associate's

    you'll often find them without the apostrophe, but if you want to appear worthy of one, you'll do it the right way...

    is that in America then Mammamaia ?

    In England/Scotland the award is singular Bachelor of Arts, Master of Arts, Bachelor of Science etc

    Then it would be a bachelor's degree and a master's degree.

    Because I am a Bachelor of Arts, and as that bachelor I hold a bachelor's degree.

    el... that's just what i said... i was agreeing with you and merely added the other degrees for further info... and since i was only dealing with the issue of the apostrophe, i didn't write out the whole thing...
