Physics 490A/B: Honours Physics Thesis

Return to Teaching
Fall 2018

Course information

Candidates for the Honours B. Sc. degree in physics are required to submit a written thesis based on their own research carried out under the supervision of a faculty member. The purpose of writing a thesis is to provide an opportunity to pursue a project in depth outside the usual constraints of course work. The project gives a taste of independent research, including gaining familiarity with scientific literature, organizing and analyzing results, and communicating the results clearly to make the research accessible to others.
