Thesis or Non-Thesis?

The decision between a thesis track and a non-thesis track generally revolves around your interest in future Ph.D. work. Many credible Ph.D. programs will not accept a student who has not already completed a thesis. Students not interested in a future Ph.D. have the option of choosing the non-thesis track. The non-thesis option provides a Capstone research project that allows you to do an advanced research project in your chosen field of study.
