The advanced practice seminar option is designed as a culminating clinical experience to provide an alternative to the thesis option. Students will be required to present an advanced practice plan and identify a clinical preceptor prior to beginning their project. Advanced practice seminars include a minimum of 120 clock hours of clinical practice per three hour course in the approved area. Upon completion of the experience, the student will be required to provide a written evaluation of the project. Additionally, the student will be required to perform an oral defense of findings to his/her committee.
The thesis option constitutes a significant part of the work toward a master's degree. The thesis must represent a high standard of scholarly inquiry, methodology, techniques, statistics, and literature review. Candidates for degrees are required to present findings to their graduate committee in the form of an oral defense.
