Honours Thesis (PSYCH 499)


Psychology is a scientific approach to understanding mind and behaviour. Honours Psychology students all learn about the body of knowledge that exists in Psychology as well as the scientific procedures for making new discoveries. The honours thesis (PSYCH 499A/B/C) is an optional course for those who have a strong interest in conducting original research and wish to gain greater experience in research design, data analysis and interpretation. Students carry out the honours thesis project under the supervision of a faculty member and present the findings in a scholarly paper.
