Delivery of this program is 100 percent online: no campus visits are required. An optional on-campus workshop is available each summer during the last week of June (Sunday through Friday), where students may present their research line of inquiry and obtain feedback.
Successful completion requires a minimum of 30 credit hours beyond the baccalaureate degree, 15 of which must be at the 8000 to 9000 level.
You also may add a concentration in design research to your course work if you require applied research skills to produce evidence-based design decisions or want to utilize design thinking for creative problem-solving. The design research concentration will not appear on your transcript or diploma, however.
