Geography M.A. Degree Requirements
The program continues the general training of the undergraduate degree but also provides for concentration in preparation either for employment or further study. The student takes courses in several areas of the discipline as well as at least three courses in an acceptable concentration. The 30-credit-hour minimum for the M.A. thesis program may include 6 hours outside the department and a maximum of 6 hours for the master’s thesis. The M.A. degree requires a final oral examination. Students with 6 or more hours of Incomplete are denied permission to enroll until these hours are reduced to the allowable limit (5 hours).
