To earn a master's degree, a student must complete a capstone experience, choosing between the completion of a master's research project or a master's thesis. In addition to the completion of a written product the student must present his/her project/thesis to the faculty. Students are required to enroll in six credits of special project (SPED 506) coursework during the last term of the program while completing the capstone experience.
