(33 credits minimum)

Interdisciplinary Requirement (9 credits)

9 credits of course work completed outside the deparment.

Elective Requirement (12 credits)

Select from 500 level courses, with no more than two 500 level courses being counted toward completion of the masters degree with thesis or creative project.

Culminating Experience:

Students may choose to complete a written comprehensive examination with a corresponding oral defense in lieu of a culminating project. These students must complete 12 credits of elective course work. Students choosing a culminating project may substitute 6 credits of either a creative project or master’s thesis for elective credit. Non-project students would subsidize the extra 3-6 units with 500 level courses.


Courses in the 500 series are open to undergraduates as *400 series. Graduate students are required to do additional work of a research nature. A course taken at the 400 level may not be repeated at the 500 level.
