A student entering the Master's Program who already has successfully completed any of these required courses must select additional, advanced courses, with the approval of their Guidance Commitee and the Director of Research and Graduate Studies. The student might choose, or be asked by his/her Guidance Committee, to take additional courses based on their background and the relevance of the course to their research project.
