M.A. Degree

Ph.D. candidates who write an acceptable thesis, and pass a final oral examination may be awarded the M.A. degree. A master’s degree is not a prerequisite for a Ph.D., but a student may choose to write a master’s thesis, or the faculty may require that the student do so. A paper accepted by a refereed journal may be submitted in lieu of a thesis with the approval of the Advisory Committee.
