The Master of Science in Natural Sciences (MSNS) is an interdisciplinary degree program offered through the College of Sciences and Mathematics. Either a thesis or a non-thesis option may be pursued in earning the degree. Upon entering the program, graduate students will be assigned to a graduate faculty committee to design a degree plan and to oversee their specific program of study, including development and administration of pertinent culminating projects and examinations. The student’s main advisor (and normally the chair of the committee) will be from the student’s discipline.
