Master of Science

Our MSc program has been designed to meet the needs of a wide variety of students who are interested in pursuing a master's degree in a health-related area. We have students with backgrounds in addictions counselling, public health, kinesiology and nursing. 

Our program consists of four core courses — all covering various aspects of research and scholarly inquiry — and an independent thesis. Full-time students typically complete the program in two years.

Through the thesis portion of the program, the MSc allows students the opportunity to study in an areas of interest to them. The topic area and the background of the student will determine the program's major. Majors are available in Nursing, Addictions Counselling, and Health Sciences. 

Our graduates from our MSc program have gone on to careers in post-secondary institutions, clinical agencies, administration or have pursued other graduate studies.
