Projects must be arranged individually with and accepted by a staff member of the Biology Department. Students must email the Honours Co-ordinator their intent by June 1 of the year prior to the final year. The proposed supervisor must also email acceptance of the student.
A completed application form available on the web (http://biology.mcgill.ca/undergrad/honours/index.html
) and an Abstract must be submitted to the Honours Co-ordinator by August 20. Applications should, therefore, be considered as competitive. A research proposal must be submitted by October 15.
The proposal will be reviewed by the student’s Honours Committee member(s), an instructor in the student's field of study. The major objective of the course is to provide an introduction to the design, execution and reporting of research. The number of projects that can be handled is limited and their quality will be examined carefully.
