Fall Course Offerings

Fall 2016 Schedule

The fall semester is broken down into two sessions.  Session 1 is 12 weeks in length.  Session 2 is four weeks in length.  A standard full-time load consists of two courses in session 1 and one course in session 2.  Standard full time status requires at least two courses per semester.  The Halmos College of Natural Sciences and Oceanography program office reserves the right to cancel a course due to low registration.  If canceled the students will have a choice of switching to a different course or receiving a full refund.

Course Schedule

Capstone, Thesis, Ph.D. Directed Study, Dissertation

M.S. students wishing to register for Capstone or Thesis Credits must have had their proposal accepted by the Oceanographic Campus Program Office.    A student who has not had their proposal approved by the program office may have to register for a Directed Independent Study and must contact the Program Office ( for the Course Reference Number (CRN) associated with their major advisor.

Once a proposal has been approved by the Chair of the Department, MS students sequentially register for and complete credits in each succeeding semester until the capstone/thesis is complete and has been successfully defended.  If a student fails to register for any given term without written approval by the Chair of the Department, that student will be withdrawn from the program.

Ph.D. students register for directed study credits if their proposal has not been approved.

To select the correct CRN, please choose your major and track.  Then select your major advisor.
