Abstract: Maser emission offers a unique opportunity to study the environment of massive star formation at extremely high resolution. Masers are especially suited for the study of magnetic field in high density regions. Polarimetric observations of OH, H2O and methanol masers probe an enormous density range. Here I present recent results of interferometric maser polarization observations, specifically those of H2O and methanol masers, and discuss their importance for studying the role of magnetic fields during massive star formation.
