Program details

Master's program

Expected duration: two years

Tuition and fees: One year tuition, then continuing fees in subsequent years (refer to Graduate tuition and fees)

Coursework is normally completed in year one, and thesis is normally completed years two to three. Adjustments may be made with the supervisor’s consultation and approval.

Thesis proposal

Students are required to complete a MSc thesis proposal, normally within eight months of start of program. The proposal must include an introduction with citation of relevant literature, research objectives, proposed methodology including a timetable, anticipated significance of the research and references. A proposed budget must be appended to the proposal.
Students are required to submit a progress report to the Head on or before February 1 annually.

Thesis

Students must produce a thesis that is appropriate for the MSc degree being sought and must successfully defend their thesis as determined by the assigned examining committee.

Pre-master's program

Expected duration: one year (18 credit hours)

Tuition and fees: Pre-master's students enrolling in courses are assessed the per credit hour course rate of the teaching unit for all courses taken. (refer to Graduate tuition and fees)

Applicants to the MSc program whose academic standing qualifies them for graduate work, but whose previous education did not include topics essential to the area of research they wish to pursue may be offered the opportunity to remedy these deficiencies during a one-year Pre-master’s program of study. The Pre-master’s program will normally include a minimum of 18 credit hours.
