Master of Science (MSc)

Students must complete OCEA 5001.03 and an additional 6 credit hours from core courses (OCEA 5110.03- OCEA 5140.03). Students who have previously taken core courses at the undergraduate level (OCEA 4110.03- OCEA 4140.03) with minimum grade of A may choose to take alternative graduate courses to meet the additional 6 credit hour requirement. Students who have completed comparable content as part of a Master's at another university should contact their supervisor and the graduate coordinator in their first term to discuss possible core course substitutions (advanced standing) or reductions to the required credit hours (advanced placement). 

Additional courses may be required to strengthen a student’s background.

Research and completion of a thesis are required.
