Advanced Honours Seminars
Honours Seminars courses are numbered from BIOL 501/3.0 to 536/3.0 and focus on a specialized topic of a faculty members' research. These courses provide one of the capstone experiences to Biology students with small class sizes and an emphasis on reading and/or experimental enquiry.
Regular meetings in small groups with faculty provide direction in developing approaches to particular topics. Evaluation is based primarily on oral presentations and written reports. 500-level offerings are announced in advance for students in their third year. It should be noted that not all seminar courses will be offered in a given year. Offerings may vary from year to year depending on availability of faculty and student interest. Normally, due to enrolment restrictions, students taking BIOL 537 will be permitted to take only one of these seminar courses (pending space) and all other fourth-year students will be permitted to take a maximum of two. Preferred access will be given to students admitted to fourth year of a BScH program in Biology
