Program of Study
The program consists of a minimum of 36 post-baccalaureate credit hours, of which up to 6 credit hours may be transferred from another university. The requirements for the M.S. in FNS degree are: 9 hours of program core requirements, 9 hours of emphasis area core requirements, 12-15 hours of electives, and 3-6 hours of non-thesis directed research or 6 hours of thesis.
The Program of Study form, which can be downloaded, lists suggested electives. Relevant electives not on this form may be approved by the student’s Master’s Advisory Committee. Thesis and non-thesis directed research credits may not be used as electives.
Students are required to file with the GPC the Program of Study form signed by their Master’s Advisory Committee before enrolling for NHM 693, 697, or 699 credits or taking the master’s written comps, whichever is earlier. Once filed, any changes to the Program of Study would require approval of the Master’s Advisory Committee.
Add slips for courses offered in the department are signed by the GPC as needed.
The Graduate School imposes a 6-year time limit on completion of the Master’s degree.
