Program Information

School:Ontario Tech University - Graduate Studies
Faculty:Health Sciences
Degree:Master
Field of Study:Health Services/Allied Health/Health Sciences, General
Description:The Master of Health Sciences (MHSc) program focuses on providing students with opportunities to develop the knowledge and skills required to conduct high-quality research projects that culminate in a master's thesis or major project.

As a research-based degree, students will combine course work, seminars and independent research to achieve the program's core objectives. Two required courses, Health Research Approaches and either Studies in Community Health (Community, Public and Population Health), Patient Journey Modelling (Health Informatics) or Studies in Kinesiology (Kinesiology), lay the foundation for more focused course work and independent research under the guidance of a research supervisor and supervisory committee. By virtue of the strong research foundation and substantive training obtained throughout their education, graduates from the MHSc program will be well prepared to take on higher-level roles within the health profession, seek funding for projects or research to be undertaken at their workplace, or pursue a PhD in a research-oriented health sciences or related program.
