Can students still get a Master's degree in a different subject?
Yes! You can get a Master's degree in a different subject, but it is up to you to convince the admissions committee of why you should be admitted. I am a living example of this situation. As an undergraduate student, I studied Exercise Sports Science and received a B.S. in that field. Later, I decided that I was more interested in English, so I applied to a Master's program and explained why I was interested and committed to the field. Later, I received my M.A. in English. It is absolutely possible.
