Tips for Completing the online AMS Master’s Program Form

We STRONGLY recommend you submit this form each semester around registration time, and you should estimate your future courses.  Students must not wait until the semester of their graduation to submit their first program proposal.

I. If you are pursuing the 8 courses plus thesis option, be sure to send your research proposal to Kristin Bechtel right after completing the online form.  They are reviewed together.

II. List your focus area in the appropriate field.  Your focus area courses should then be listed on the first three lines of the course list. 

III.  Do not leave the Academic Ethics and Responsible Conduct of Research fields blank.  You should complete both courses during your first semester.

IV.  Be sure to list your computing course and the semester/year you completed it.
