Congratulations to our newest MA, Adam Grearson

Adam Grearson successfully defended his MA thesis, “Graduate Mental Health and Wellness at McMaster University”

Apr 15, 2019

Congratulations to Adam Grearson, who completed his Masters of Arts degree in sociology this week when he defended his thesis under the supervision of Dr. Karen Robson. Adam will be entering the PhD program in sociology in September, where he will continue to study the mental health experiences of university students.

In 2018 Grearson was awarded a Canada Graduate Scholarship from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council. Grearson knows first-hand what it's like to experience psychological distress. Through his research he's working to help other students avoid falling into the cracks that once threatened his life.
