Individual program requirements described in The University of Memphis Graduate Catalog, 2013-2014, are subject to change. Please consult your department or the Office of the Graduate School for changes that may occur before publication of the next issue of this Catalog. Every graduate student is expected to comply with the general requirements of the Graduate School (see Admissions Regulations, Academic Regulations, and Minimum Degree Requirements) and the program requirements of the degree being pursued (see departmental listings in this section).

Graduate programs in the College of Education, Health and Human Sciences prepare students to be leaders within their professional areas of education. Candidates for a degree must design a curriculum plan that has the approval of their major advisor, the department chair, and the Associate Dean for Graduate Studies.

In programs where candidates are specializing in a professional area, awarding a degree or recommending for a professional license does not merely attest to the accumulation of the specified number of hours in the classroom or other professional setting but also to the demonstration of professional knowledge, skills, and dispositions. The faculty has the responsibility to both the public and the profession to award a degree or license only when the candidate has demonstrated a satisfactory level of professional knowledge, skills, and dispositions as judged by the program faculty. Further, candidates must exhibit integrity and character consistent with the standards of ethical principles set forth by appropriate professional associations and Tennessee law.

The College of Education, Health and Human Sciences offers degrees at the master's, specialist, and doctoral levels. The master's degree programs are the Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT), Master of Science (MS), and the Regents Online Master of Education (MEd). Offered at the post-master's level are the degrees of Education Specialist (EdS), Doctor of Education (EdD), and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD).

Graduate degrees in the College of Education, Health and Human Sciences are available in the departments of Counseling, Educational Psychology, and Research; Health and Sport Sciences; Instruction and Curriculum Leadership; and Leadership.

For specific information concerning majors, areas of concentration, course requirements, etc., students should review the program descriptions found under the departmental listings in this Bulletin. See the chart of academic programs at the beginning of this section for majors and concentrations.

Master's Program Requirements

Admission to Master's Degree Candidacy

Admission to the Graduate School allows students to enroll and begin to take courses prior to admission to a degree program. However, a student's initial enrollment should not be taken to mean acceptance for degree candidacy. To become a candidate for a degree, the student must apply for a specific degree and major and be accepted for that degree. A maximum of 12 hours taken prior to acceptance will be counted for that degree. At the beginning of the semester of graduation the student must submit an "Intent to Graduate" form and an "Application for Admission to Master's Degree Candidacy" form. See the Graduate School homepage for specific dates and forms. For advice on completing the candidacy form, the student should consult the major advisor or the Office of Teacher Education.

Appointment of Advisor

Prior to initial enrollment, the student is advised to arrange an interview with the chair or a representative of the department in which the student plans to major. At this meeting the student may be assigned an advisor who will help the student in planning a program of studies. Some departments appoint an advisor upon admission.

Workshops and Independent Study Credits

The maximum combined credit in "Independent Study" and "Workshop" courses that can be applied to the master's degree is 12 semester hours with no more than 6 semester hours applying to the major. Seven semester hours of credit in "Independent Study" courses may be applied to master's degree requirements, but no more than 4 of these hours may be taken in either the major or the collateral area.

If the student should elect to take "Workshop" courses and no "Independent Study" courses, only 6 workshop hours could apply to the major.

Other Requirements

For all master's programs, a minimum of 70% of the total required hours must be taken at the 7000 level. At least 12 semester hours of these must be taken in the major.

Program of Studies

Each student, in consultation with an advisor, will plan a program of studies leading to the fulfillment of the requirements for one of the degrees listed below.

Minimum requirements for the Master of Science degree are:

Changes in Program of Studies

Any changes to be made in a program of studies must be submitted on the appropriate form and must have the approval of the program advisory committee, the department chair, and the Associate Dean for Graduate Studies.

Doctoral Residency

Students working toward the doctoral degree must fulfill the University and College residency requirement after filing a program of studies.

Purpose

The purpose of residency is to provide the doctoral student with significant time for sustained contact with faculty members. An expected outcome is the acquisition of skills of inquiry, an opportunity for research, and the incorporation of professional values into the experience that the student brings to graduate school. Also, it facilitates the creation of a cohesive climate in which inquiry becomes the linking feature of the graduate student experience. In short, residency is expected to be a vehicle for socialization into the shared community of professional life. At the heart of that community lies a commitment to sustained inquiry that extends beyond the period of doctoral preparation and into the student's lifetime work, either as a practitioner or as one who demonstrates leadership based on a foundation of inquiry.

Doctoral Residency Policies

1. A doctoral student must select one of the following course enrollment options:

  • The student will maintain two semesters of continuous enrollment of 9 hours per semester. The enrollment requirement may be satisfied by enrolling in fall, spring, and summer semesters.
  • Three semesters of continuous enrollment of 6 hours per semester;
  • Nine hours of enrollment per semester during two consecutive summers and at least 3 hours per semester during the intervening fall and spring semesters.

2. A plan for the scholarly product of residency will be developed by the student and major professor. The plan will be reviewed by the department.

3. The scholarly product plan of residency consists of the following elements:

  • The plan will be contained in a 3-5 page document.
  • It will contain an introduction to the problem area that the student will address during the coming period of residency. This introduction will include a specification of the problem, an indication of its importance, and a brief summary of pertinent literature placing the problem in its context. Relevant theoretical implications will be noted.
  • It will detail a plan of action including projected time benchmarks to resolve the problem. It is expected that this plan will allow for a sustained and multifaceted inquiry that incorporates significant components derived from the literature and that have implications for the field of study.
  • Tools of inquiry expected to be required in the course of completing the residency will be noted. If the candidate possesses these tools, some indication documenting the mastery of the tool component should be noted. If skills of inquiry are to be acquired during the course of the residency this must be noted.
  • Faculty resources associated with each component of the plan must be indicated.
  • The products of the residency will be noted. It is expected that the residency will lead to a paper submitted to a refereed journal or a peer-reviewed conference.
  • A copy of the scholarly product of residency that has been approved by the major advisor must be filed with the Associate Dean for Graduate Studies.
  • All research involving data collection, use of existing data, or other investigations using human subjects must be reviewed and approved by the University's Institutional Review Board for the Protection of Human Subjects prior to beginning any such research.

Timetable for Filing for Residency

Prior to beginning residency, the written plan must be filed. The plan must have the approval signatures of the chair of the candidate's program advisory committee and of the department chair. It must be submitted to the department office of the candidate's major for approval no later than the last day of graduate registration in the semester designated to count as residency. Students are expected to have satisfied requirements for admission to the doctoral program before filing a residency plan.

Comprehensive Examination for the EdS, EdD, and PhD Degrees

When the candidate in good standing has completed all course requirements for the EdS, EdD, or PhD degree or is enrolled in the last semester of coursework (exclusive of culminating experience or dissertation) he/she must pass a comprehensive exam, written and oral, covering the major and collateral fields of study. For EdD and PhD candidates, residency must be completed prior to taking the comprehensive exams. The student who passes the comprehensive exam will be designated as a Late Doctoral Candidate or Late Specialist candidate in the candidate's degree status. Doctoral students may not enroll in dissertation hours until they have attained Late Doctoral status.

EDS CULMINATING EXPERIENCE AND DOCTORAL DISSERTATION

The EdS degree candidate will present a six-hour culminating experience appropriate to the major area of specialization. This may be fulfilled through a thesis based on research related to the major, a field study of a significant problem, an organized internship, or a special project appropriate to the major.

An acceptable dissertation is a requirement for all doctoral degrees. The dissertation must embody the results of an extended research effort that is an original contribution. It should reflect the candidate's ability to conduct independent research and interpret in a logical manner the facts and phenomena revealed by the research. The student will be required to meet the specific regulations of the major department and of the Graduate School (see the Thesis/Dissertation Preparation Guide). The EdD or PhD degree candidate will present a dissertation for 9-12 hours´┐Ż credit.

Enrollment Requirements

All degree candidates must maintain continuous enrollment of at least one credit hour per semester (Summer school enrollment is optional for continuous enrollment.) once they begin taking field study, culminating experience, or dissertation hours. If they fail to do so, they will be charged retroactive tuition at graduation.

Credit will be posted upon the completion and acceptance of the culminating experience or dissertation, but no more than 6 hours will be counted toward degree requirements for an EdS culminating experience and no more than 12 hours for a doctoral dissertation.

The continuous enrollment requirement may be waived for any semester the advisor is not on campus or for other reasons approved by the major advisor, the department chair, and the Associate Dean for Graduate Studies of the College of Education, Health and Human Sciences.

Failure to remain in continuous enrollment without an approved waiver will result in reevaluation of the candidate's status in the program by the program advisory committee.

Committee Membership for Supervision of the Dissertation

After completing the comprehensive examination, the candidate will form a dissertation advisory committee of at least four graduate faculty members. The dissertation advisory committee will direct the development of the candidate's prospectus, dissertation, and defense. The chair (major professor) must be a full graduate faculty member from the candidate's area of concentration within the major. At least one other committee member must be a faculty member in the candidate's major. The department chair, following consultation with the candidate and the major advisor, will make a recommendation to the Associate Dean for Graduate Studies concerning the appointment of the dissertation advisory committee.

Doctoral Prospectus

In order to provide a relatively uniform framework for preparation of a doctoral prospectus, the College of Education, Health and Human Sciences has specified a format to be followed in its preparation. Copies of the format may be obtained from the major advisor or from the office of the Associate Dean for Graduate Studies.

Once a prospectus is approved, it is expected that the study will be completed within three years; if not, the program advisory committee will reevaluate the candidate's status in the program.

"Early doctoral student" designation applies to all doctoral candidates from the time of formal admission to candidacy in the College of Education, Health and Human Sciences until the time of completion of course work and passing the comprehensive exam. At that time the candidate is redesignated as "late doctoral student."

Culminating Experience/Dissertation Guidelines

Culminating experiences and dissertations must be prepared according to guidelines specified by the College and the Graduate School. For specific information, the student should consult his/her major advisor. NOTE: Students should familiarize themselves with the Thesis/Dissertation Preparation Guide before starting to write.

Final Examination (Culminating Experience/Dissertation Defense)

After the completion of the culminating experience/dissertation and all other prescribed work for the degree, all candidates will be given a final oral examination dealing primarily with the culminating experience/dissertation and its relation to the candidate's major field of study. This exam will be conducted by the student's culminating experience/dissertation advisory committee.

GRADUATE ASSISTANTSHIPS

Graduate assistantships for post-master's students are available in most of the academic areas of the College of Education, Health and Human Sciences, and a limited number of graduate assistantships for master's students are available.

Active work and satisfactory progress toward a degree are necessary to hold an assistantship, and graduate assistants are required to be registered in each term in which they hold assistantships. Full-time graduate assistants take twelve hours of course work per semester (six hours if they are enrolled for thesis or dissertation hours) and serve 20 hours per week on the assistantships.

Permission for graduate assistants to take fewer then twelve credit hours in a semester may be granted by the Graduate School upon the recommendation of the College of Education, Health and Human Sciences's Associate Dean for Graduate Studies and the department chair. Permission to take more than twelve hours may be granted upon recommendation of the department chair and the College of Education, Health and Human Sciences Associate Dean for Graduate Studies.
