Coursework and Thesis
The Master of Science program provides students with solid groundwork in conducting health science research. It also establishes a foundation regarding the uptake of knowledge (knowledge transference) to clinical practice.
Applicants must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 in the semesters containing the most recent 20 graded university courses, however, since the number of qualified applicants can exceed the number of places available, fulfillment of the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission.
Full-time or part-time study is available to students. Four courses are required in the first year:
- HLSC 5100: Research Methods (Fall term)
- HLSC 5200: Philosophy of Inquiry (Fall term)
- HLSC 5300: Advanced Statistics (Spring term)
- HLSC 5400: Advanced Qualitative Analysis (Spring term)
These courses are usually offered in a three-hour block, once a week. Statistics also has an additional three-hour lab. Students must maintain a minimum grade of 2.7 (B-) in all courses. For graduation, students must have a minimum cumulative program grade point average of 3.0 (B).
