M.S. Degree Requirements

Students are admitted to the M.S. program only if they have compelling reasons for pursuing advanced study, but the Ph.D. degree is not practical for them. Course requirements generally are the same as for the Ph.D., but the research component is of more limited scope. The student must defend the thesis satisfactorily in an open seminar as part of the final examination.
