Electives are chosen from existing 5000, 8000, or higher level courses to provide a cognate area based on the student’s interest in, for example, engineering, kinesiology, neuroscience, psychology, public health, rehabilitation science, or teaching in higher education. Not all courses listed in the course descriptions for this program are available to MS NMS students. The Program Director and faculty advise on and approve the selection of electives.

MS NMS students are initially advised by the Program Director during admission and in the first term if an academic advisor has not been identified. Within two terms of matriculation, students are assigned an academic advisor from the core program faculty — or an available Graduate Faculty member with expertise in the student's cognate area, as approved by the Program Director. Students develop an "Individualized Development Plan of Graduate Studies," which is reviewed with their advisor every term, and by the NMS Program Director and/or the Program Advisory Committee on an annual basis.

Culminating Events: No thesis or other culminating event is required.
