  • The MSE is a 36 semester hour program. Students take core educational courses along with courses selected with a faculty advisor based on the student's area of concentration. The program culminates with a theory and research class and the completion of either a master's seminar aimed at producing a publishable manuscript, a research-based project or a thesis depending on the student's interest.
