6 Credit MSc Thesis

The 6 credit MSc thesis is equivalent to two graduate courses.  The thesis research and/or implementation are less comprehensive in scope.

Program Requirements under This Option

1.   24 credits of approved courses of which a maximum of six credits may be 300 or 400 level undergraduate courses.  All courses must be approved by the student’s advisor or supervisor, and in the case of undergraduate courses, by the Graduate Advisor as well.

2.   The 6 credit MSc thesis (CPSC 549A) must satisfy one or more of the criteria cited above for the 12 credit MSc thesis, but is of correspondingly lesser scope.

3.   The final thesis has to be approved by the supervisor(s) and a second reader.   The second reader should be someone who was not involved with the student’s thesis; although the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies highly recommends an external reader, it is not a requirement.  If there are any questions, you or your supervisor(s) should contact Associate Head of Graduate Affairs (ah-grad@cs.ubc.ca) as early as possible.

The student is required to present the thesis results at a departmental seminar.
