One course should be taken the first semester of the senior (final) year and the second one should be taken in the semester when the thesis will be defended and the degree awarded. A defense of the thesis should be scheduled at an appropriate time in the second semester of the senior year and allow sufficient time for final thesis revisions, formatting and submission. This must occur at least 12 days before grades are due and before the start of exams.
