My school has a 5 1/2 year masters program. You do a 4 year bachelors and you can a masters in 3 semesters instead of four. However, my school does not have many professors which specialize in what interests me, and there is another school nearby which has a lot of professors who specialize in what interests me. Is it worth the extra semester of school to do a program with professors that specialize in what interests me? or does this kind of thing not matter if I'm only getting a masters and not a Ph.D.? The field is Biomedical engineering and what interests me is applying biomedical engineering to problems in neurology, psychiatry, and psychology.
