Comparing Characteristics of Freestanding Master's Programs


Table comparing characteristics of Master's programs


Summary:

The departments with applied, professional, or clinical tracks do not differ significantly from the departments offering traditional  programs in terms of whether they require a master’s thesis or have a non-thesis option. Greater variation can be found in the types of offerings, the experience of faculty members, and the source of their students.
