Students must pass all courses with a grade of B or better or they will be required to repeat the course. The student must maintain a 3.0 overall cumulative grade point average to continue in the master’s program.

There is no expectation of the time required to complete the master’s degree; usually two years of study are necessary to complete the requirements. At the appropriate time in their research, students will prepare a thesis and schedule a final oral defense of the thesis. The final oral examination (defense of the thesis) will cover the subject of the candidate’s dissertation and related basic science course work.
