On Thursday afternoon I got an email to say I have been accepted into the 2-year thesis program!
In the Department of Health, Aging and Society at McMaster University, they ask students to submit a 3 page thesis proposal before they will allow them to choose the 2-year option.
There are two options in the masters program, a 1 year major research project option and a 2 year thesis option.
Out of the approximately 15 masters students in my year, only 4 of us want to do the 2 year thesis option, and as far as I know, all of us were accepted.
I am interested in the changing classification of dogs, specifically service dogs, as they are being used more and more in assisting people with health and disability. I want to know how a service dog should be defined.
This summer I will begin to look at the literature in the area. then I will need to figure out who I want to interview and start the tedious process of data collection.
I am SO excited to finally be given the chance to conduct research in an area I am passionate about.
