The candidate must earn a minimum of 42 hours of graduate credit beyond the master's degree or 72 hours beyond the bachelor's degree.  The quantity and the content of course work to be completed by each candidate is arranged individually by the advisory committee, subject to the approval of the academic component leader and the Graduate School.  In some cases a student may need to complete additional semester credit hours in order to meet individual requirements determined by the advisory committee.
