In consultation with their advisors, students will choose to complete one of the following culminating experiences: comprehensive exam, thesis or project.
This option is suited for students who wish to maximize their course enrollment options and requires 30 graduate credits. The four-hour exam consists of three essay questions from core courses in your program of study (COL/NS 700, 720, and 730). These courses must be complete prior to taking the exam. Enrollment in these core courses is not allowed during the semester in which the exam is taken. Degree completion will require earning a passing score on each exam question.
