The Educational Program
The two-year master’s program and the three to five-year PhD program are tentatively comprised of the course list below. The courses offered in our master’s program serve as preparation for the Master’s Comprehensive Exam that all master’s candidates must pass in two parts – one portion of the exam is administered each year. The additional third, fourth, and fifth-year courses serve PhD students’ advanced research interests.
Please bear in mind that all advanced degree students will pursue the twenty-one courses (beginning with QS0 and ending with QS28) listed below in chronological order in their first two years of study.
