Graduate degree requirements include a mandatory component that provides training in the areas of academic integrity and ethics.
The normal requirements of this training component will include participation in activities such as workshops, presentations, discussion groups and course work related to each of the following areas:
- Intellectual Property Guidelines for Graduate Students and Supervisors: This document is available at www.gradstudies.ualberta.ca (Degree Requirements & Supervision)
- The University of Alberta Research and Scholarship Integrity Policy (Section 96.2 of the General Faculties Council Policy Manual): http://www.ualberta.ca/~unisecr/
- The relevant Tri-Council and Canadian Council on Animal Care requirements for ethics approval for research
To fulfill these requirements, each student is normally expected to complete the equivalent of at least eight hours of structured academic activity for this training component. Students should consult the department for guidance about specific requirements for ethics training.
See Ethics Training Requirement for more information.
