I completed my degree part-time while working. This program schedule encouraged me to apply and translate the coursework within a practical, real-life setting. I was able to enhance both the breadth and quality of my paid employment while readying myself to be increasingly competitive for other career opportunities. The skills and knowledge I developed and acquired during the MSc program have been highly transferable to a variety of health promotion positions within government and the not-for-profit sector. Most recently, my degree enabled me secure a new position promoting health in the education sector with the Alberta School Employee Benefit Plan.
