This course will allow students to carry out a research project in the Health Sciences. Students will gain experience searching relevant literature, developing research questions/hypotheses, and designing a research plan and methods. (Note: The primary difference between HSCI 592 (120 hours) and HSCI 598 (240 hours) is the number of hours the student is expected to spend on the project, which corresponds to a lesser scope of the research project in HSCI 592).

Note: This course is only open to students registered in the Bachelor of Health Sciences program.
