About the Thesis Option
The thesis is equivalent to four half-courses (2 FCEs).
A thesis is normally an empirical study (either qualitative or quantitative), which represents a moderately complete effort to answer a research question. It is evaluated by an examiner who is external to the university.
Students must register in the placeholder course section (HESC 9901) once they have begun work on, and as they are completing their thesis. Students must have continuous registration in the placeholder course in each term until program completion.
