Description The MA degree is ideally in a field related to health such as health policy, health management or health informatics. Related disciplines include but are not limited to: equity studies, sociology, psychology, political science, management, and nursing - to name a few. The research paper tests MA students against the educational objectives of being able to form an original researchable question, and to address it through an appropriate theoretical framework, review and synthesis of the literature, analysis of primary or secondary data sources and formation of a set of conclusions. It trains students in the formulation and writing of a specific project, and gives students the experience of working independently on a project under faculty supervision. Students develop a research topic given their interests in specific areas and are supervised by faculty members with related expertise.
