Usually referred to as a non-thesis option, a comprehensive graduate program will typically culminate in some sort of examination.

For example, in order to complete my graduate program I had to give a three-hour presentation that detailed a portfolio I complied of the various works I had completed throughout the course of the program.

Now, keep in mind that every program is different, and will require its own type of examine. Your best bet is to contact the programs you are interested in, and discuss with them the details of their comprehensive programs.
