For more information please contact, Iris Kehler, Program Administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are three components of the full-time, course-based option:
You must successfully complete 8 one-term graduate courses. Four of these are mandatory core courses. The other four are electives.
The required courses are:
You can choose your other four courses from the list of approved electives. At least two of your electives must be 700 level.
Two of the additional courses must be from the approved list of electives for your area of specialization. The other two electives must be from one or both of the other faculties.
The purpose of developing a scholarly paper is to demonstrate that you can integrate what you’ve learned through your internship and class work. It should reflect your understanding of the innovation, methodological and management issues in the field of study you’ve chosen. It should show that you can independently discuss these issues concisely, critically and coherently. Your paper should not involve an extensively focused examination of a particular research issue, since it’s a scholarly essay, not a thesis.
The paper is evaluated by your academic supervisor and another faculty member (your committee).
All students start the program in the fall term (September). There are three terms throughout the year:
Students normally complete three courses during each of the first two terms.
Students complete their internship in their third and fourth terms (May – December).
Students complete any outstanding course-work and complete their scholarly paper on return from internship in the Winter term (January – April).
Funding options are available for 24 months. The program must be completed within 36 months.
