The GSC enforces Graduate School rules regarding master’s degree programs. The GSC may:

  • recommend awarding a master’s degree on the basis of passing the doctoral candidacy examination or completion of satisfactory scholarly work for a thesis or approved non-thesis work.
  • establish rules for designating master’s degree areas of specialization (Section 8.5) to be recorded on student transcripts
  • establish rules and procedures for the conduct of the master’s examination, including attendance by graduate students and faculty members other than the master’s examination committee members
  • review student records to ensure that master’s degree requirements are met
