Research thesis stream

Build your research skills

The Research Thesis Stream is ideal if you want to develop more advanced research skills. By pursuing a research question of relevance to your practice, you will develop a more solid foundation for evidence-based practice, other research-oriented positions, or continuing academic studies.

This stream offers full and part-time options. If you choose the full-time option, you will spend one year completing courses and a thesis. If you need more flexibility, there is also an option to complete the program part-time over three years.
