Major Research Paper/Project

Nutrition Communication (MHSc)

The Major Research Paper/Project (MRP) provides an opportunity for you to:

  • Develop subject matter expertise.

  • Demonstrate your ability to synthesize evidence and formulate original ideas.

  • Use a rigorous process to create a project that may shape policy, practice, and teaching.

  • Pursue your interests – whether that’s a specific topic, communication medium, or project.

  • Create the central piece in your professional communication portfolio.

Completion of a comprehensive and balanced structured literature review, use of a critical and evidence-based approach in the analysis of findings, and development of rationale-based recommendations/outcomes are essential elements of a high quality MRP.
