It includes theses (for "Plan A" thesis-based master's degrees), projects (for "Plan B" project-based master's degrees), and papers (for "Plan C" coursework-based master's degrees). For more information about the distinctions between Plan As, Plan Bs, and Plan Cs, see the UMD Graduate School Degree Requirements webpage at
