Final project, paper, or examination
The master's degree is offered under two plans: Plan A, requiring a thesis (KIN 8777), and Plan B, which substitutes additional coursework and special projects for the thesis (KIN 8995). Both plans require a final oral exam before an examining committee.
Students must complete a minimum of 30 credits (for MS) and 36 credits (for MA).
Master's Plan A students must enroll for a minimum of 10 thesis credits (8777) before receiving the degree.
With approval of the faculty advisor, the transfer of up to 8 credits of graduate-level coursework (for Plan A) or 10 credits of the graduate-level coursework (for Plan B) from an accredited institution may be permitted (not including thesis or project credits).
A minimum GPA of 3.0 is required for successful completion of the degree.
