Honors Research Project
The objective of the Honors Research Project is to provide students with the opportunity to experience first hand what research is all about. Students will work with a Faculty member on some aspect of his/her research program. For more information about the Honors Research project check out the FAQs, view our course schedule, or view the projects here. We also offer the Honors Research Project during the spring-summer terms and an Advanced Research Project (4999E).
The 4th year Honors programs have been designed to leave (at least) each afternoon for students to work on their projects. This course is restricted to 4th year Honors students and Scholars Elective students.
Supervisors have spent considerable time devising and organizing the 4th year projects, and so it is essential that students start their projects on time and agree with their supervisors on a work schedule so each knows roughly when the student will be in the laboratory.
Fourth-year students are not permitted to work alone in the Lab
at night or on weekends.
This should not be necessary if you get your work done during weekdays.
Biochemistry/Chemistry Students have the option of taking Chemistry 4490 or Biochemistry 4491E. If you choose to take 4491E you can:
- register in September, after you have had an opportunity to interview potential supervisors OR
- register in the summer if you have already decided to take 4491E or 4490
If you are undecided, then we recommend that you wait until September after you have had an opportunity to interview potential supervisors. Either way your spot in 4491E will be guaranteed.
