German term or phrase: Magisterwürde
"Nach dem Graduiertenbestimmung der VR China ist ihm die Magisterwürde verliehen worden."

This is the title of a degree. The guy graduated from a university in China. The Magister part means Master of something, but the "-würde" part of the word has got me stumped. Just "degree", perhaps? TIA for your help.

Thank you very much for that Katy. To Edith: I did look up the glossary before asking the question, and could find nothing for "Magisterwürde". I checked again now, and the only entry I found was this question! So I don't know where this "long discussion" occurred, but I'd be very interested to read it.

Anyway, back to Katy: thanks once again - really appreciate your help.
