The MATC is a 30-credit program consisting of nine three-credit courses and a three-credit final project (non-traditional thesis). There is a set curriculum, meaning there is a prescribed list of courses that are designed to be taken in order. The MATC has no electives. Completion of the program should take 2 ½ years.
Upon completion of coursework, students must take a written comprehensive examination to demonstrate mastery of the curriculum. The exam is given at the end of the spring semester of the second year of the program and may be taken at UNC or remotely.
