Learners starting the UBC Master of Rehabilitation Science (MRSc) program this September or later will have the option of choosing to complete the major project courses or other elective courses.
“This option was pursued due to some learners finding it difficult to arrange the necessary work-site support to complete their research. We are still encouraging learners to pursue the major project due to the benefits of learning how to conduct small scale research projects that have a direct impact on practice,” explained Program Director Sue Stanton.
RHSC 589 Major Project II will also increase from 3 to 6 credits. This change was made to provide learners the time and credits to increase the size of their research projects and increase research dissemination possibilities.
The various pathways through the UBC Rehabilitation Science Online Programs can be viewed on the program website under Choose Your Path.
