HSCI 593 Health Sciences Research: Data Collection and Interpretation

 Every term
 Year 4
 3 units

Dr. Laura van Staalduinen, Dr. Lisa Carver

This course will allow students to carry out a research project in the Health Sciences. Meant to follow HSCI 592 or 598, students will gain experience answering research questions and/or testing hypotheses using a research plan and methods developed during the initial course, with an emphasis on the development of research skills and practice interpreting data.

Note: The primary difference between HSCI 593 (120 hours) and HSCI 599 (240 hours) is the number of hours the student is expected to spend on the project, which corresponds to an expected increase in the scope of the research project.

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