Honours theses

Students pursuing an Honours BSc or BASc degrees complete a 6-month original research project under the supervision of an EOAS research professor, write a detailed thesis and present a poster version of their work.

 

Undergraduates make significant contributions to the Department’s research output. These are often formative experiences for young scientists and professionals. Discover the quality and diversity of their work by browsing this list of titles with links to the corresponding thesis title page and abstract.
