Students in either master’s program complete (with a B average or better) a total of 24 course credits as well as a thesis (6 credits). In general, students in the human geography area will work toward the Master of Arts degree, while physical geography students will pursue the Master of Science. Students coupling the human-environment systems will work towards either the Master of Arts or the Master of Science given the emphasis of coursework and thesis topic. Course work programs are tailored to the student’s research interest, and each student’s work is periodically reviewed. There is no special examination or language requirement.

It is the responsibility of the student in consultation with the thesis advis0r to complete the thesis and to obtain acceptance by the thesis committee. A public presentation of the thesis to the Department also is required.
