      This will be the Final Course for those on the Master's degree track.

      A master's degree is started after a bachelor's degree is earned.

      To start considering such work - in what discipline are you most focused? Perhaps consider a project where the majority of your classes indicate your interest. You would submit your plans and ideas - we would then work with you to develop a custom curriculum.
