If you have taken an equivalent course previously, you can ask for an exemption, except for SPPH 507. If you want to check whether you are eligible for an exemption, please contact the course instructor before the class is held. Should you receive an exemption, you will still need to register for the course, which will show on your transcript as ‘EX’. It’s important to note that this will not reduce the total credits required for the degree – you will need to substitute the same number of credits by taking a different course.
Electives should be chosen, with the advice of the thesis supervisor and thesis committee. They may be chosen from the list of SPPH courses or from other University courses.
For more information on the thesis for this program, please visit this page. The School of Population and Public Health cannot guarantee funding for successful applications. Applicants are advised to pursue potential funding opportunities with their identified supervisor. Alternatively please see our Awards and Funding Programs page.
