MSc Requirements as of September 2013

The MSc degree program in Exercise Sciences is designed as a two-year program consisting of a combination of course work (2 FCEs) and original research. The program is intended to broaden the students' understanding of the various interdisciplinary aspects of the exercise sciences as well as to provide them with the necessary scholarly and technical research skills so that they may pursue a high quality research project. The research project will culminate in the presentation of a formal written thesis and final oral defence.

Courses

0.5 FCE in Exercise Sciences

0.5 FCE Statistics or Methodology course (in Exercise Sciences or other Department)

1.0 FCE in Exercise Sciences or another Department

Graduate Seminar Course

Notes: FCE = full course equivalent [1.0 FCE can mean either one full course or two (0.5) half courses]

Additional Requirements 

A thesis proposal written under the supervision of a thesis committee and its oral defence before an examination committee.

An original thesis written under the supervision of a thesis committee and its oral defence before an examination committee.
