Students in the CTS Programs complete required and elective didactic courses that meet the requirements for the degree program in which they are enrolled or for the Certificate Program. 

Many of the same foundational courses are completed by students in the Certificate and the MS program. The MS program also serves as the entry portal for PhD study.

A complete description of courses and requirements for each course of study can be found in the Sackler Catalog  download pdf
