Full-time Study Requirements for Program Completion
Students will be able to complete the entire accelerated BS/MS TSM program at the end of their 5th year of study if they maintain full time student status. The accelerated program reduces the number of undergraduate electives that students take from 3 to 1, and replaces the two undergraduate elective courses with the two graduate core courses, EST 581 - Methods of Socio-Technological Decision Making and and EST 582 - Systems Approach to Human-Machine Systems.
Advantages for this BS/MS in TSM degree are:
To assure quality of the program, a minimum grade of B in the core courses will be required for acceptance of credits towards the MS/TSM.
1. Earlier admission to MS/TSM while the student is in their third year of the BS/TSM program.
2. Taking two graduate courses to replace two elective undergraduate classes will strengthen overall BS/TSM Program
3. Shorter time to complete the MS/TSM degree
