Degree Requirements

Students who lack appropriate background are asked to make up deficiencies by taking a program of bridge courses, including any prerequisites, that is designed in consultation with graduate advisors. See the undergraduate catalog for description of bridge courses.

The program comprises 30 credits of required and elective courses. The student consults the graduate advisor to plan and maintain an individualized and cohesive sequence of courses.
