Measures to instill academic integrity (as submitted by school)

Students are asked to write an essay upon entrance to the program. In addition, students are asked to use "Turn it in", a software program that checks papers for possible plagiarism. Exams are used very little in the program. In research courses, faculty work very closely with students to ensure that students are supported. Other software products like Smarthinking (an online tutorial service) is also used to help students get feedback on papers. By working very closely with students and by utilizing the mentioned software programs, we believe that we can ensure academic integrity of the coursework.
