18 months.

 

Internship, Thesis, or Practical Project Credit
Students complete six hours of thesis, internship and/or research project credit in advanced topic areas. The final paper should relate to the student's area of concentration and constitute the culminating experience in the Master of Science degree program.

 

Two primary goals for graduate programs at Peru State College are flexibility and relevance. Students may propose to write detailed case studies, develop unique courses or programs for other institutions or the community, research and write substantial grant proposals, etc.

 

Guidelines and required documents for the Internship, Thesis, and Action Research Project are on the Forms & Documents page.
