The Clinical Research degree program follows M.A.S. Plan II. The degree program currently requires 36 units of graduate level courses. In addition, each candidate must complete a final capstone requirement consisting of both a written and oral presentation of the student’s mentored research project (see CRGG Degree Requirements document for details and Course Descriptions for more information). No thesis is required. The handbook is used to help guide students in the program.
