Final Examination (Master's)

An oral and/or written final examination or evaluation is required in all master's programs (see departmental policy for specific format). For some non-thesis master's programs, final exams are structured in special ways, including evaluation of a project as the final examination. For non-thesis, coursework-only master’s degree programs, the committee will conduct a final evaluation of the student’s record to confirm degree completion. All master’s final examinations and non-thesis, coursework only evaluations are scheduled through the Electronic Scheduling System. For more information about master's final examinations, consult the departmental policies and procedures document.
