This is an independent study course. It involves student-initiated units of study that are based on a contracted study arrangement worked out between an individual student, an approved project’s supervisor, and Athabasca University (via the program coordinator). Topics are chosen in consultation with the program coordinator, and can be adapted to local, comparative or international contexts. Such research and analysis is meant to facilitate a critical analysis of various trends currently having an impact on the Human Services sector in Canada and elsewhere. This is an advanced course, intended for students who have completed foundational courses in Human Services such as HSRV 311 and HSRV 322, or equivalent courses from another institution.

To learn more about assignments and examinations, please refer to Athabasca University's online Calendar.

Course Materials

Course materials will be determined by the student and project supervisor as part of the preliminary research proposal.
