Program information

On completing the MPH-Thesis program, students will have both the professional credentials to practice in public health and the research experience necessary to pursue a PhD. The students admitted to this program will have sufficient time to complete the course load for the MPH program, in addition to a thesis that is consistent with the expectations for an MSc at the University of Saskatchewan.

Students interested in pursuing the thesis option should identify a supervisor in the first term of their program, identify an appropriate thesis topic and practicum site.  The deadline to submit the thesis option application to the School of Public Health is January 15 of each year, with conditional acceptance decided by January 31.
