The Degrees of Master of Arts or Master of Science

Graduate work is offered leading to the degree of Master of Arts in the fields of comparative literature, liberal studies, and digital musics, and to the degree of Master of Science in chemistry, computer science, earth sciences, engineering sciences, health care delivery science, health policy and clinical practice, physics and astronomy, and quantitative biomedical sciences. Refer to the Thayer School catalog for graduate work leading to the degree of Master of Engineering Management (MEM) or Master of Engineering (MEng) and the Geisel School catalog for the degree of Master of Public Health (MPH).

To receive the degree of Master of Arts or Master of Science from Dartmouth College, a graduate student must have spent at least three terms in residence at Dartmouth and must have received credit for eight courses at the graduate level. These courses may be replaced in part by research or special study approved and supervised by the department accepting the student for graduate work, provided that not more than four of the required courses may be so replaced. Additional requirements may be imposed by the individual departments.

Candidates whose preparation is deemed deficient by the department accepting the candidate may be required to correct this deficiency by taking courses in addition to those required for the degree.

Thesis: A thesis is ordinarily required of candidates for the Master’s degree but on recommendation of the department in which the degree is sought this requirement may be waived.
