Upon entering the program, students are given a temporary advisor. By the completion of nine hours of graduate work, students are expected to have chosen their major advisor with whom they can work closely. Students are expected to maintain a 3.0 or better GPA. A thesis or comprehensive exam is required of all MA candidates. There is an oral portion of the comprehensive examination as well as an oral examination of the MA thesis by the candidate’s committee after each member of this committee has had time to review the project thoroughly.
