2. MA TRANSITION POLICY

Transition Policy for the Master of Arts in Comparative Studies

 

Under the quarter system, the MA in Comparative Studies required 50 coursework hours plus additional hours for the thesis, several more than were required by the Graduate School (45). With the conversion to semesters, students will need 27 coursework hours and at least 3 additional thesis hours. The structure remains the same, and requirements (9 courses plus thesis) are only slightly modified in the conversion to semesters.

 

The transition will not require additional coursework for any students, regardless of their status at the time of transition. We have devised the following table to show students how the change to semesters will affect their completion of the MA degree:
