Degrees Offered

The Master of Science degree is offered with majors in Biology, Applied Computer Science and Mathematics. Satisfactory scores on the verbal, quantitative and analytical writing sections of the Graduate Record Exam may be required depending on the program.

Two options are offered in the Master of Science degree programs: Plan I (with thesis) and Plan II (without thesis). One exception to this is the M.S. in Applied Computer Science program which has only the non-thesis plan.

Thesis Requirement

The element that contributes most to the attractiveness and readability of the thesis or dissertation is consistency in format. Consistency means the student establishes a series of conventions or protocols regarding heading sequencing and other aspects of appearance to visually guide readers through the document, thus enabling them to concentrate on the content. For more information, refer to the “Style” portion of this Guide.

Students must submit the thesis or dissertation, with the required Content Pages, for the final formatting review prior to printing copies which will be bound. The student and Faculty Advisor signatures on the Format Review Form indicate that editing and formatting have been reviewed by the student and the committee prior to submitting the required Content Pages to the Format Reviewer for the final format check and approval. The final format check and approval ensures that the required Content Pages adhere to the UWG style requirements. Content is not reviewed for spelling, punctuation, or writing style by the Format Reviewer.

After fee payment is made to the UWG Cashier, the originals of both the Format Review Form and the Binding Order Form, located at the end of this Guide, are submitted by the student to the UWG Library along with the delivery of the appropriate number of copies of their thesis or dissertation for binding. A copy of the Binding Order Form will be submitted by the student, with binding fee payment, to the Cashier’s Office, first floor Aycock Hall. The Graduate Studies Associate in each college will receive a copy of the Format Review Form. The Format Reviewer and the student will each retain a copy of both forms.
