Study Method

All students are enrolled into the regular track by default. The decision to remain in the regular track or transition to the research track (thesis track) is made by the end of the first semester of the school year of enrollment. Students who wish to transfer to the research track will locate an eligible supervisor and submit a statement of intent to showcase the research idea no later than the first week of their second semester of studies. Additional information can be obtained here.

​Students in the regular track will submit a final project paper, according to the guidelines of the School of Public Health. Additional information can be obtained here.
