Research Degree Requirements
The Graduate School’s degree requirements are kept to a minimum in order to give the Special Committee and the student freedom to determine appropriate degree requirements and to define a program of study best suited to the student’s particular goals.
For the Ph.D., M.A., and M.S. degree programs there are three requirements imposed by the Graduate School:
- registration units,
- examinations, and the
- dissertation or thesis.
The graduate fields may set additional requriements. Please check with your field for more specific field-related information.
Except in certain professional degree programs, requirements for credits or courses are not imposed by the Graduate School.
