Courses

Students pursuing the STL MS degree select from one of two program concentrations, transportation or logistics. To complete the degree, students in both concentrations are required to complete the same five core courses (15 credits) in addition to five (5) concentration-specific and /or general electives (15 credits).  These electives may include a project (3 credit hours) or thesis (6 credit hours), both of which would qualify as the culminating degree experience. If neither a project or thesis is selected, then an ePortfolio is required.

The student’s major advisor must approve all proposed programs of study, including the elective courses to be counted towards the degree.  For the project and thesis options, a STL faculty member must agree to serve as the project/thesis advisor.

General Electives

General electives can be satisfied for either concentration; students should talk to their major advisor for recommendations on electives before registering for classes.

Other departments may offer spceial topics course (IE 500, CIE 500) that potentially may satisfy either program elective requirement. Students should check the coure schedule each semester for these topics and get approval from their major advisor and the department hosting the course for permission to enroll.

Culminating Experience

Students opting for the Master's Thesis or Master's Project must have submitted a proposal to their major advisor before registering for either course. A topic must be approved prior to enrollment.
