If an applicant has a degree in another area, their academic record is examined to determine if a core deficiency exists in the student’s previous undergraduate background, otherwise qualified candidates may be required to take up to 12 undergraduate credits.
Applicants are selected on the basis of past academic record, letters of recommendation and relevance of proposed research to the expertise of the department. Enrolment in the Master’s program is limited in part by the availability of research supervisors.
For certain kinds of research, a professional certification (e.g., CATA, FKQ, CSEP, or certification in other health related disciplines) could be an asset for acceptance into the program.
Fully-qualified candidates are required to complete a minimum of 45 credits.
