Final Comprehensive Exam on UF campus
In lieu of a master’s degree thesis, students must pass a written comprehensive exam administered on campus in Gainesville, Florida.
Required Travel to UF Campus
Students typically plan two travel weekends to the UF campus over the course of their program to attend one weekend seminar during any spring semester, and to take the comprehensive final exam upon completion of all coursework. Students wishing to consolidate travel time into one weekend may choose a plan of study that will enable them to attend a spring seminar and take the final exam in the same weekend.
