Degree Requirements

To ensure academic success in their graduate studies, students may be required to take additional undergraduate or graduate courses before beginning graduate curricula. This program of bridge courses will be individually-designed in consultation with the student’s graduate advisor. Such courses are not counted toward degree requirements.

A minimum of 30 credits is required. A thesis or project may be included.

Seminar: In addition to the minimum 30 degree credits, all students who receive departmental or research-based awards must enroll each semester in a graduate seminar. The seminar is selected in consultation with the graduate advisor.
