  Professional degree - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A professional degree is an academic degree designed to prepare the holder for a particular career or profession, fields where scholarly research and academic activity are not the work, but rather a profession such as law, medicine, engineering, religious ministry, or education.
In Sweden, a professional degree is an academic degree that is regulated under common laws of the Swedish government, examined and awarded by prescribed schools and universities, and intended for those wishing to follow a given profession.
The professional degree is often similar to Bachelor of Science or Master of Science, depending on the title of the profession and on the years of education which varies between 90-330 ECTS.

 The Master's Degree. ERIC Digest.
In an effort to bridge the gap between professional and nonprofessional disciplines, it may be that the new paradigm of graduate education is the first professional degree-a highly differentiated degree whose content and structure are based on more utilitarian and measurable objectives and directed toward more immediate outcomes that reflect contemporary societal values.
In graduate and professional education, the master's degree has received little attention, but recent research indicates that neither reputational ranking nor quantitative assessments are adequate and that multidimensional indicators are needed to assess this level of degree.
The overriding issue in the literature on these degrees is the dilemma between theory and practice-how to balance the need for practical knowledge and training in a skill with the theoretical framework of the field of study.
