Degree Requirements: 

Coursework Option

This option requires a minimum of 30 credits be earned through coursework. Use of limited number research credits in partial fulfillment of the requirements for a coursework degree may be allowed in exceptional cases. Students wishing to apply research credits toward a coursework degree must obtain approval from their advisor and department. The department must then obtain approval from the Graduate School. Approval will only be granted when there is evidence that an appropriate body of work has been completed, sufficient deliverables have been produced, and circumstances beyond the students' control have made it necessary for them to change from a research-based to a coursework-based degree program. 

A graduate program may require an oral or written examination before conferring the degree.

Distribution of coursework credit  
5000–6000 series (minimum) 18 credits
