In addition to one-on-one advising, the MS3 program provides a number of documents to help students plan their year of coursework.
The MS3 program is one of the most flexible degrees at UMass. Courses change every year; upon being accepted to the program, students receive a "Welcome Packet," which includes a number of advising materials, including a Course List. You can see the advising materials below.
Students can then use the "Roadmap to Graduation" to design their degree.
Another way our students look for classes is by using the "search courses" option in Spire. Here they can look for courses categorized as "green" using the attribute option. They can also search each department for courses at 500-level or above that might interest them (and fit into a required category).
