NEW

MSc eHealth students are eligible with permission to take courses in the Master of Public Health program.

HRM courses are in high-demand and HRM in-course students (who meet the course prerequisites) are given priority for registration. Students from other graduate programs at McMaster who meet the course prerequisites and obtain permission from the instructor (if applicable) will be added to the wait-list. (Refer to the MOSAIC course catalogue or HRM website for detailed prerequisites). When students obtain permission from the instructor they can email Sophia Piro to be added to the wait-list.

For eHealth students, permission will be facilitated through Cynthia Lokker. Please send her an email with your request.

Contact us if you’d like to know when available spaces will be released for registration.

Other Options

If you find another graduate level course you believe would be a suitable elective, please contact the Program Administrator to ask that it be reviewed.
