The MSc in one Health degree program is comprised of 100% online coursework, a one-week residency in St. Kitts, and a final capstone project. All online coursework can be completed on your own time from the location of your choice.
The one-week residency in St. Kitts coincides with One Health Week at Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine. It provides an opportunity to meet in-person with other students in the program and faculty actively engaged in One Health research, while allowing the student cohort to share their perspective and dissertation work to the Ross Vet research community. Each MSc in One Health residency week is themed around a specific One Health discipline and is integrated with leadership, team building, and presentation skill competencies.
In your last course, you will complete a One Health capstone project in an area of your choosing that pulls all of your coursework together to demonstrate your working knowledge of One Health concepts using a systems approach to the discipline of your choice. The capstone project may be carried out in St. Kitts and Nevis or in other locations, as appropriate, under the supervision of a Ross Vet faculty member. The research component may be desk-based, lab-based, or through fieldwork and will result in the submission of a mini-thesis.
