Students may wish to continue their undergraduate studies and undertake an Honours year.
Honours Degree requirements:
Students will be selected into the honours program on the basis of their performance in all 300-level subjects. Course planning will in all years take into account the preferred progression path and any prerequisites required in that progression.
The Honours course is comprised of coursework (three subjects, 37.5%) and a research project (62.5%). The three coursework subjects will be slected from those offered at graduate certificate, graduate diploma or advanced undergraduate levels, by the Faculty of Land and Food Resources and other faculties of the University. They will enable students to gain sufficient familiarity with the fields relevant to their research project. Applicants to the program will need to demonstrate the completion of appropriate prerequisite subjects in their undergraduate courses when selecting coursework subjects. Final subject choice will be approved by the research project supervisor. Students will also be expectd to participate in research discussion groups or "journal clubs" and attend the department's research seminar series.
