A core program consisting of four courses (12 hours) and 24 hours electives is required of all graduate students. With advisement, students select the remaining elective courses in a specialty area of interest. To graduate, students must earn a minimum of 36 credit hours, receive candidacy status, and successfully complete a comprehensive examination or successfully defend a thesis. Students may complete the program in two years if they are attending full time. Part time students are welcome. All courses are offered in the evening and some are available in the summer.
