MASTER’S DEGREE

The EER M.S. Program provides foundational knowledge of EER topics, theories, and research methods as well as a specialization appropriate to students’ intended career path. Students may earn the M.S. degree in the following ways. First, students may apply for and be admitted to the EER Program to earn a stand-alone EER M.S. degree. Second, students admitted to the Ph.D. program will be eligible to add the master’s degree after successful completion of the 30 credit hours of master’s degree coursework (typically within two years).
