You need 10 credits to complete our program if you follow the course-based pathway option full time (1 year) or part-time (5 years). If you follow the research-based route, you have two options (MRP = Major Research Paper - 7 half-credits plus MRP) or thesis option (5 half-credits plus a Thesis). Full-time MRP students will finish in one year and thesis students have two years to complete the program.
