Confused on spelling variations: Master of Science vs. Master's of Science.

I am preparing some resumes, and found out that I have never needed to spell many varations of Master of Science.
I am confused about 2 points: the "'s" and the capitalization of Master
"I am currently finishing a Master of Science". I think this is wrong?
"I am currently finishing a Master's of Science" - is that right? or is it
"I am currently finishing a master's of science" (no capitalization)
Also, do thing become different when the sentence becomes:
"I am currently finishing a Master of Science degree". It seems to me in this case the possessive nature changes?
"I am pursuing a Master's degree" (or should it be a small m?")
If it makes a difference I am writing Canadian English.
very confused - thanks for the help.
ps: no i am not pursuing a Master's (master's?) degree in English :P
