About

The MS degree builds on the foundation of skills, breadth, and depth of the undergraduate education to achieve greater competency. The MS program brings students to the state-of-the-art in one or more specialty areas enabling them with the skills necessary to handle problems at the cutting edge of the profession.

Overview

The intent of a thesis is to advance the state of the art, while the intent of a project is to apply the state of the art.  The results of a thesis should be publishable as a journal or conference article, while the results of a project may or may not be publishable. Students completing a thesis receive 6 credit hours for their effort, while students completing a project receive 3 credit hours for their effort.  Work on a thesis is more likely to be funded than work on a project.  Both a thesis and a project are reviewed by a graduate committee comprised of three faculty members.  A thesis is presented to the faculty committee, while a project is usually presented in graduate seminar.  Expectations regarding the quality of written and oral presentation are the same for both a thesis and a project.

Funding

Financial Aid

We understand that tuition and other costs are important considerations when deciding which graduate school to attend. As one of the most affordable private universities in the United States, a significant portion of the cost of operating the university is paid from the tithes of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Therefore, students and families of students who are tithe-paying members of the Church have already made a contribution to the operation of the university. Because others have not so contributed, they are assessed a higher rate of tuition. This practice is similar in principle to that of state universities that generally charge nonresidents at a higher rate than residents. This higher tuition still does not cover the total educational cost.

Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
