The Master of Science in Aeronautics (MSA) is a multidisciplinary program that enhances your knowledge of behavioral sciences, data analysis, modeling and simulation, project management, systems integration, applied research, statistics, technology, and, most importantly, your specialization subject matter.
There are five areas of specialization from which you can select:
The Master of Science in Aeronautics degree gives you the option to select one or two specializations taken in conjunction with core courses. As part of the degree requirements, you can choose a Graduate Capstone Project or Thesis, giving you the option to continue into doctoral programs such as the Embry-Riddle Ph.D. in Aviation.
