MM Program Requirements
The MM degree provided by NAU consists of two requirements: graduate core courses and elective courses. Once students complete the first course (MT6255), they will begin taking the emphasis courses providing they have met the prerequisites for those courses.
The MM degree may be earned under a non-thesis or a thesis plan. Under the non-thesis option, the student must complete 31.5 hours of graduate-level core courses and 13.5 hours of electives.
