589.** Thesis Research - 1 to 3 semester hours.
Research and preparation for writing the thesis. Prerequisite: Approval
of graduate adviser.
590.** Thesis Writing - 3 to 9 semester hours.
Writing of thesis. Prerequisite: STA 589.
* No more than 6 semester hours of Advanced Graduate Studies
credit may be counted toward a degree without
special permission from the Dean of the College.
** Once a student begins work on a thesis he or she must register for

session until the thesis is completed. A student may not register for
590 until the thesis proposal is
approved. A maximum of three semester hours each of 589 and 590 will be
counted toward the M.S. in mathematics
or statistics or mathematics teaching.
