Since 2007, UFV Geography Honours students have been engaged in projects that provided advanced research experience and a leg up on graduate school applications and employment.
In the program, students work one-to-one with a faculty supervisor to design and conduct a research program, the final product of which results in an undergraduate honours thesis.
Where has this taken them? Geography honours students have presented their research at regional and national conferences, providing invaluable networking opportunities. Some have won internal and international awards for their research.
Most honours students have gone on to graduate school across Canada and in Australia, in master's programs in the Arts, Sciences, and Planning, most winning major entrance scholarships and awards.
