NREM Master's Degree Programs

NREM offers three options for master's degrees:

Plan A – a thesis-driven, research degree that requires a faculty sponsor who has agreed to advise the student.

Plan C – a degree for students with exceptional prior work experience that requires a final written and oral comprehensive examination.

MEM (formerly Plan B) – a course driven, professional degree that requires an integrating capstone experience.

To meet the integrative, interdisciplinary intent of the NREM program, a set of graduate level courses (the Primary Master's Core) will be required of every student, regardless of his/her selected Plan option or specialization area.

For additional information, refer to the Graduate Student Guide.
