All students must complete 30 credits, 18 of which must be at the 500-level, achieve a 3.00 grade-point average, and successfully complete an interdisciplinary master’s production (academic thesis or creative production with academic essay). Students work with their faculty advisers and supervisory committees to select courses in accordance with their individual interests. The 30-credit program is distributed over three groups of courses: prescribed courses, supporting courses, and recommended elective courses.
Grade-Point Average and Time Limit
Students must achieve a 3.00 grade-point average. A full-time student can expect to complete the program in four semesters, a part-time student in six or more semesters. Students are expected to complete all requirements for the degree within six years, although the deadline may be extended at the discretion of the graduate coordinator in accordance with policies approved by the Graduate School.
