  • Course | FSW 5011Independent Research Project


This course has been designed to allow students to conduct comprehensive research in a specific area related to forensic practice that does not easily lend itself to a more broadly offered course.

This course provides an opportunity for students to individually identify a topic of interest in relation to social services and the law while exhaustively examining pertinent issues ultimately composing a thorough paper on the subject. This independent research project (IRP) may include the review of existing literature potentially with a synthesis of new understandings or of original research. Any original research involving human or live subjects will require review by the Humber Research Committee and Ethics Review Board. The final IRP paper must represent a substantial effort to the extent that it may be submitted for consideration for publication.

Note: Students must have been admitted to the program to take this course. Admission to the program requires a diploma and/or a degree from an accredited university or CAAT.
