Students are able to choose from either a program in which only coursework is required or a program in which they must complete a research project. If a student elects to take only coursework (Plan C in the Graduate Catalog), the student must complete a minimum of 35 credit hours in order to graduate. If the research option is chosen, the student must complete a minimum of 32 credit hours including EDER 788 Research Problems.

The C&I degree is structured to allow a great deal of flexibility. It is expected that students will take a mixture of required courses and elective credits, depending on their areas of interest. See below for the expectations for C&I areas of emphasis. In addition to the C&I degree, SDSU offers coursework to meet the English as a New Language endorsement in South Dakota. These courses may be completed with no intention of seeking a degree, or may be used as part of the basis for completing a C&I degree.
