MS in Administrative Studies

The Master of Science in Administrative Studies (MSAS) is a multidisciplinary program designed to provide the opportunity for focused graduate study in a specialized, industry-specific area of interest. Each of the concentrations will allow students to develop creativity, global awareness, communication skills, and the ability to use technology to increase productivity and efficiency.

Degree candidates have six years from the date of their first course to complete the program.

Dual Concentration Option

This is a unique opportunity for students to obtain additional specialized knowledge by completing two Administrative Studies concentrations. Students can qualify for a second concentration by completing (1) the prerequisites, (2) the concentration requirements for each concentration, and (3) a minimum of three additional concentration courses (15 concentration courses). The exact number of courses needed may be more than 15 depending on the student’s concentrations and the courses selected.

Good Standing

No grade lower than B– may be applied toward degree or certificate requirements. Students earning below a 3.0 cumulative grade point average (GPA) will be placed on academic probation status. Students on academic probation must make satisfactory progress toward achieving a minimum of 3.0 by the following semester, and must be in a position to graduate with a 3.0 or better within the remaining program courses. While grades of B or B– are considered passing, these grades will not assist in raising an unsatisfactory GPA to a satisfactory level. Therefore, students must obtain a minimum grade of B+ during a probation period.

Students who, in the determination of the department and based on past student performance, are not in a position to raise their GPA to the necessary level to graduate within the remaining courses will be dismissed from the program. Students who have not removed themselves from academic probation status after one semester for full-time status or three courses for part-time status will be dismissed from the program.
