MA stands for Master of Arts, and MFA stands for Master of Fine Arts. MFA concentrates more on developing the skills of the student. MA is centered around broadening the knowledge of the student through classroom courses. It is a post-graduate degree that provides a master's level degree in arts.

This degree is accessible in most of the colleges and universities across the world. The most popular subjects that someone going for their MA includes history, social sciences, geography, language, and philosophy. MFA is an alternative for those students who wish to pursue higher education in arts.

Fine arts is a particular field of study which courses given to the students generate creative minds at a more sophisticated level. Some of these audacious subjects include dance, theater, music, painting, sculpting, drawing, and music. These are individual colleges that cater to the needs of those who are interested in performing and visual arts.
