The thesis option is strongly recommended only for those students/applicants who have a strong interest and commitment to conducting educational research, such as those who may pursue doctoral studies in the future. The courses-only option requires the completion of ten-half courses. Thesis option requires six half-courses plus the completion of a thesis. Continuous enrolment is required for the duration of the degree.
