The Master of Education in Health Sciences Education (HSE) is a minimum two-year, part-time, course-based and thesis-based program. All students are admitted to the course-based program. Students may request a change of program category to a thesis-based route after completion of ★24 credits of required coursework, in consultation with their advisor(s). Change of program category must be made no later than the end of the second year of the program.
The HSE is designed for interprofessional health professionals and clinical faculty. It provides students with opportunities to develop educational research skills and apply them in specific contexts of interest. Highly qualified, enthusiastic faculty from the Faculty of Education and health professionals ensure exceptional levels of individualized support for students as they investigate their own topic(s) of educational interest.
To optimize the learning experience, the program is cohort-based.
The required courses are delivered using synchronous and asynchronous online format. Some courses include an optional face-to-face class. Required courses are typically 8 weeks long. One course is delivered in a face-to-face, one-week format.
