EXSS 6090 Comprehensive Exam
Candidates for any of the master’s degrees in the College of Education (Department of Exercise Sport Science) must satisfactorily pass a comprehensive examination. A graduate student must be admitted to candidacy for a degree before he/she will be allowed to take the comprehensive examination. The policies and procedures for the comprehensive examinations are available in the Department of Exercise Sport Science secretary’s office. Early in their degree program students should review the requirements for taking the examination. Students whose performance on the comprehensive examination is unsatisfactory may reschedule an examination at the next regular administration, or, at the discretion of the dean, at an earlier time. Five hours are allowed for the completion of the written portion of the exam. Unless departmental requirements are more limiting, students who attempt the comprehensive examination two times and are not successful, will be dropped from the graduate program.
