The M.S. by Research degree is intended for mature students who wish to learn and perform research in a supportive academic environment. It is awarded upon successful completion of a graduate-level research program, usually lasting four semesters. Beyond the satisfaction of a relatively small number of coursework requirements, the major focus of the program is on developing research skills,leading to the completion of a Master's thesis describing significant original results.
The Doctor of Philosophy is the terminal, research-oriented degree in the subject, intended to prepare students for research, teaching, and scholarly careers in academic settings or research laboratories. It connotes a superior comprehension of the field and a high aptitude for research, and is awarded upon completion of a program that takes from 3 to 5 years (there are no hard limits). Beyond the satisfaction of a relatively small number of coursework requirements, the major focus is on carrying out a significant body of original research and the writing and defense of a doctoral dissertation describing this work.
