Thesis Stream

If you’re thinking about graduate or professional school (med, law, MBA), or if you just would enjoy the challenge of independent research in psychology, consider completing an undergraduate thesis. To learn more about what the thesis stream, you can attend one of the thesis/grad school information sessions that are held twice a year by Dr. Michelle Dionne, the Undergraduate Thesis Coordinator, in conjunction with the undergraduate Psychology Students Association.

The Thesis Stream Information Package & Application (link below) contains a comprehensive list of frequently asked questions and is an essential read for anyone planning on applying to the thesis-stream. The link next to this outlines which supervisors are considering thesis students for Fall 2020 admission.

How to Apply

By the end of the second term of the penultimate year of their program (i.e., the end of the Winter semester of 3rd year for most students), students must apply to the department for permission to enroll in PSY961 (Thesis Project I). This is a two-step process.

First, you must find a suitable faculty advisor in the weeks and months leading up to the application.  A listing of our faculty members is available here.

Second, you must submit the completed application and associated documentation to the Undergraduate Program Administrator (Sarah Carmichael, JOR941) by the April deadline for priority consideration.

  Please take note of the deadline stated on the application.
