Thesis Option

The thesis option requires at least 30 credit hours, which include and require three to six hours of ISEN 691. If a student wishes to take ISEN 681 (this is optional), the student can only take zero to three hours of ISEN 681. The combination of ISEN 681 and ISEN 691 cannot exceed six hours.

Non-Thesis Option

Non-thesis students are not allowed to take ISEN 691. Non-thesis students are not required to take ISEN 681. But if a non-thesis student chooses to take ISEN 681, it will not count toward their degree. Non-thesis students have the option to take ISEN 685, but they cannot exceed three hours of ISEN 685.
