A complete application requires the following items be completed:
Applicants should review the following information with their Research Mentor and any proposed members of their Committee of Studies so that each party is clear about the expectations for the program and the function of the Committee of Studies.
Each MSCR learner will be supported by a Committee of Studies (COS) composed of their Research Mentor, a member of the MSCR Steering Committee (chosen by the learner or appointed by the MSCR Program Director) and at least one additional subject matter expert. The basic role of the COS is to plan with the learner an integrated individual program of study and thesis research project that meets general and specific graduate program requirements. The COS will also provide guidance and feedback to learner progress with regular reviews at structured COS meetings that should occur at least quarterly, but more frequently when necessary. The COS may also establish prerequisites when needed; recommend transfer of credit; approve significant changes in the program of studies and thesis research; recommend changes/additions in the committee makeup; and serve as the Exam Committee for the Thesis Defense.
