Both theoretical research and applied research are emphasized. The thesis is based on the student’s independent research, but the work is guided, from selection of a topic through final revision, by a thesis committee. The completed thesis must receive the approval of both the department and the dean of graduate studies.
The program requires 24 credits of coursework and 6 credits of thesis. In addition, the student must complete an oral examination in defense of the thesis. To be eligible for the oral examination, the student must have completed the required courses and have a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or higher for all graduate courses completed as part of the program.
