Annual Ontario Psychology Undergraduate Thesis Conference

The Ontario Psychology Undergraduate Thesis Conference is an informal forum for PSYCH 499 (Honours Thesis) students to present a summary of their honours thesis to a friendly and enthusiastic audience of their peers and to discuss their work with others who have similar interests. Presentations can be orally or in poster format.

Registration is required. There is no registration fee for presenters or thesis supervisors and lunch is provided. Participants report that the event is very worthwhile and enjoyable. Clearly a great way to end fourth year!

The conference is held at the end of April or early May. If you plan to participate, data collection for your honours thesis should be completed by March. You are not required to present a complete analysis of your thesis results at the conference.

If you are registered to participate in this conference, please contact Fiona McAlister and include the title of your presentation and the name of your Supervisor.
