Students who are enrolled in the M.S./Ph.D. program must complete a total of 90 credit hours (up to 30 in the dissertation). Students in the combined M.S./Ph.D. program are not required to take the core master’s courses, but they must take the core doctoral courses and at least one of the following capstone experiences: a research seminar (generally offered as a topics course) or an independent study course, either of which must result in an article-length research project of publishable quality; a master’s thesis; or a master’s internship. After completing the core doctoral courses, capstone experience, and 30 credit hours, students will be awarded the degree of Master of Science in Science and Technology Studies.
