Degree Plan & Requirements 

Degree Plan

An official degree plan must be filed before you complete 12 semester credit hours. No 1000-4000 level courses will be accepted on any graduate degree plan. 

Electronic copies of the degree plan worksheets are available for the WFLP Master of Science with an emphasis in corporate training and performance improvement and for the WFLP Master of Science (CTE) with an emphasis in career and technology education and certification

Complete the top portion (down to the course listings) and return it to the Master's advisor by mail, fax, or email.

The specific courses listed on the website for the Master's degree are on the WFLP Master's page and will be used on the degree plan. You may transfer no more than 6 credit hours of 5000 level or above courses upon approval of the Master’s advisor. See the Graduate Catalog for specific information. If you are required to complete  an internship, changes will be made to the degree plan to reflect the number of credits and the schedule for enrollment in an internship.

The degree plan will be sent by the department to the Toulouse Graduate School where it will be officially approved and filed. You will receive a copy of your degree plan for your records. This process can take from six to eight weeks.

It is your responsibility to review the course descriptions for the courses on your degree plan in the Graduate Catalog. Please note some WFLP courses have prerequisites.

  • EPSY 5210 is a prerequisite for enrollment in LTEC 5340
  • LTEC 5340 is a prerequisite for enrollment in LTEC 5360
  • LTEC 5340 (taught each fall semester) followed by LTEC 5360 (taught each spring) should be taken in sequence within the last 15 semester hours of coursework.


Changes in degree plans are made only in select circumstances. Any changes in the degree plan must be approved by the Master's advisor and documented on a form filled out and forwarded to the Toulouse Graduate School. 

During your final semester of MS in WFLP coursework, follow the guidelines for graduation as specified in the Graduate Catalog. Questions regarding graduation should be made to the Toulouse Graduate School.


Requirements 

Our faculty prescribes to the Academy of Human Resource Development's standards on Ethics and Integrity, and Graduate Program Excellence.

The Master of Science with a major in Workforce Learning & Performance is a 36-hour program. This is the recommended degree for those seeking careers in the field of training and development, corporate training, workplace learning, or performance improvement. 

The career fields for individuals who seek employment in workplace learning, performance, applied technology, or training and development are rapidly expanding. The expansion of opportunities, due to fundamental restructuring in both the private and public sectors of employment, is key to a global marketplace in which the current workforce must develop new skills.

The Graduate School requires that degree candidates in non-thesis seminar programs successfully complete an exit seminar (LTEC 5360) during the last semester of enrollment. All graduate courses for this degree are 100% Internet-based: there are no classroom sessions to attend!
