Master’s Curriculum


PhD Curriculum

Minimum Course Requirements

Course requirements for doctoral degrees vary from field to field and from student to student. In ALL fields, the PhD degree requires at least 90 credits BEYOND the bachelor’s degree. All master’s degree credits counted toward the minimum must be earned in the last seven (7) years.

Transfer of Credits

No more than 30 credits of a master’s degree from another institution may be transferred to a doctoral program. If a student holds a master’s degree in a discipline different from the doctoral program, the master’s work will NOT be counted in the program unless the academic unit petitions the Dean of the Graduate School.

Credits

  • GMS 7979 Advanced Research (Pre-PhD Candidacy)
  • GMS 7980 Doctoral Research (Post-PhD Candidacy)
  • Other Graduate Courses (as recommended by a student’s PhD Advisor and or PhD Supervisory Committee)

Syllabi

Course syllabi is available for all of our courses.
