Degree Requirements

Comprising 10 Full Course Equivalents (FCE) 

Practicum

The MHSc program includes a practicum as a required component completed as a full-time placement in Block 3, 4 or 5.

  • It requires a minimum of 8 weeks (320 hours) and equals one full course equivalent (FCE).
  • Students have an option to extend it to 12 weeks (480 hours) and earn an additional 0.5 FCE.

If exceptional circumstances prevent the student from engaging in a work placement, the student can meet the requirements of the practicum by completing a project.
