There are two main degree pathways you can select from, a thesis based MSc or a coursework based MSc.
Thesis Based Pathway
The thesis based pathway does of course include a coursework component. You’ll complete 15 credit hours of courses. Most of these will be optional, and cam be selected with your specialisation and career plans in mind. You will have to take a Research Methodologies course at the minimum, and all chosen courses must be at the 7000 level or higher to apply to your degree.
Coursework Based Pathway
The coursework based pathway increases the minimum amount of coursework to 24 credit hours. Note, though, that only 18 of those hours must be at the 7000+ level. The remaining 6 credit hours may be taken from courses of 4000 level or higher. This is intended to be a 2 year program, and is unsuitable for students who plan to progress to a PhD program after graduation.
