The Graduate Coordinator will be your advisor during your Masters program. You will choose your courses based on your academic interests in consultation with the Graduate Coordinator. It is important to consider your comprehensive exams and the areas that you wish to study for the exams as you decide on your schedule for each semester. You cannot sit for an exam in area in which you have not previously completed a graduate course. You may not take an exam in an area in which you are currently taking a course unless you have already completed one in that area prior to your exam semester.
