If you enroll in the MA program, whether as your terminal degree or with plans to pursue further graduate study elsewhere, you are required to complete the required course work and submit an acceptable thesis. It is possible, however, to opt into the PhD program, in which case the thesis can be replaced by additional hours of classes. In this way you will lose no ground to those whose original intentions were to pursue the PhD
