Major: Coastal and Port Engineering
Degree: MS in Civil Engineering
Major Requirements
The Civil Engineering Master's Degree (MSCE) consists of a minimum of thirty credit hours.
Students in the Civil Engineering Major may select either a thesis or a non-thesis option. Students in the Coastal and Port Engineering major must complete a thesis.

All programs of study must be approved by the School of Engineering Graduate Program Director prior to the end of the second semester of graduate study. UNF Conditions for the Degree:

  1. A GPA of 3.0 must be maintained. If the GPA falls below 3.0, the student will be placed on Academic Probation.
  2. At least 18 hours of coursework at the 6000-level must be applied to the degree.
  3. All coursework for a graduate or post-baccalaureate professional degree must be completed wthin six years of a master's degree-seeking student being admitted to a graduate program. All exceptions must be approved by the student's Graduate Program Director and the Dean of the Graduate School.
School of Engineering Conditions for the Degree:
  1. All coursework must be completed with a grade of "C" or better.
  2. A GPA of 3.0 must be maintained. If the GPA falls below 3.0, academic probation will result.
  3. No more than 6.0 hours of transfer coursework can be applied to the degree. However, a student may transfer up to 12.0 hours from online graduate classes taken within the Florida State University System, provided the total of all transfer courses does not exceed 12 credit hours.
  4. A student may not receive 5000-level credit for a cross-listed 4000/5000-level course previously completed at the 4000-level. Exceptions to this rule may be considered with documented evidence of significant and appropriate differences in content between the courses.
