Successful completion of a final oral examination is required for all master's degrees. You will defend the course of study and capstone project by coordinating with your Graduate Advisory Committee (GAC).
While it is generally expected that all members of graduate committees, including students, should be physically present at all required meetings, it is permissible for your and/or committee members to participate from a remote location. Please contact your GAC if defending from a remote location is an option you are considering. Learn more about policies governing master's degree programs.
