Joint MS Course Tracks

Each student must select one of nine Course Tracks to focus his/her Joint MS coursework to gain a core of scientific or technical expertise in one area. Course Tracks are organized around one broad topic and aggregate relevant courses from various departments on campus. Students must complete a minimum of four graded classes within one Track, while maintaining a "B" average. Because of the inherently interdisciplinary nature of these topics, courses may be represented in more than one Course Track. Students may opt to take additional courses in other Tracks beyond the four required in their selected Track. Although some courses are not offered every year, they are still included in the track.

If a new course is identified that has a similar rigor and content as a current track course, please contact the E-IPER program manager to suggest that it be added.
