The program of study for PhD degree must contain a minimum of 30 hours of graduate course work. These 30 hours must include at least 21 hours of graduate course work exclusive of 9000 (research) and 9300 (thesis writing). Twelve of these 21 hours must be courses that are restricted to graduate students. The program of study must include a minimum of 3 hours of 9300 (thesis writing). Any courses below the 8000 level which are open only to graduate students must be marked with an “*.” The remaining six hours may be 9000 (research), 9300 (thesis writing), or any other appropriate graduate coursework.

Courses not allowed on a program of study are 7005 (Graduate Seminar), GRSC 7770, GRSC 9270, and ELAN 7768 / 7769.
