The proposal will be individualized to the student’s area of interest that addresses the Thesis Guidelines established by the MSc Health Science Education program. Some components of the paper maybe started in a preliminary form by the student during their program. Students will be encouraged to present part of their thesis research (e.g. literature review) during the Health Science Education II Scholarly paper presentations course. Students who plan to conduct fieldwork to collect necessary data will seek appropriate ethics approval. Supervision feedback will be provided on an on-going basis by email online, telephone, videoconference, or in person should a face-to-face meeting at McMaster University be required.
Thesis students must submit a written thesis and oral defense (in person) before a committee comprised of the Graduate Program Director, the student’s Supervisory Committee and an external examiner.
