The Master of Science (MS) degree provides students with a combination of experiences in basic research, design, development, and practical applications.
Masters with thesis (Option A)
The MS degree requires successful completion of a core curriculum (30 credit hours) plus an acceptable thesis.
Non-thesis Masters (Option B)
A non-thesis option consisting of 31 credit hours is available. Enrollment in the non-thesis option must be requested within the first 9 credit hours of graduate course work and approved by the Director of Graduate Studies.
Under the non-thesis option, we now also offer a Clinical Immersion program, in which we provide enhanced experiential learning to prepare students for healthcare and related professions with unique competitive advantages.
