The Master's program is designed for students who are interested in pursuing their Ph.D. as well as students interested in directly entering the workforce. Students considering Ph.D.-level study should choose the thesis option. In this path, students are required to demonstrate mastery of the research process, including writing a research proposal, collecting and analyzing data, and interpreting the results. Students desiring a terminal Master's should take the Master's exam option. In this option, students prepare and complete an eight-hour examination at the conclusion of their studies.
Students may take graduate course work in other disciplines to enhance their program of study. Interdisciplinary approaches to research are encouraged.
