Master of Science Degree with Thesis

(30 credits)

The master of science program with thesis serves a twofold purpose. First, it can be viewed as the initial step toward advanced study. Second, the program challenges those individuals who desire to advance their knowledge in exercise physiology or sport psychology. Both theoretical 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.

Graduation requirements -- Students need 24 credits of coursework and 6 credits of thesis to complete this program. In addition, the student must complete an oral examination in defense of the thesis. The thesis must be completed within the area of concentration.

Oral examination -- In order to be eligible for the oral examination in defense of the thesis, 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. This includes graduate courses taken at Ithaca College, exchange courses at Cornell University, or approved transfer courses taken at other institutions.
