The Master of Science degree (thesis option) requires a minimum of 30 graduate semester credit hours. All courses in the degree must be taken for a grade; the exception is COMP7990 Research and Thesis, which is offered in incomplete/complete format. The three required 7000-level courses are COMP7270, COMP7300, and COMP7500. Students may take up to three (3) credit hours of COMP7930 Directed Study. A thesis is required for the MS-CSSE degree (i.e., thesis option). A written proposal supporting thesis project must be approved by a student’s supervisory committee, which is comprised of at least three faculty members. One member of the committee is designated as the major professor (a.k.a., advisor). Students must pass a comprehensive oral examination at the conclusion of their studies. All students with thesis option are required to submit Master’s Final Examination Form to the graduate school.
