Description: The Honours program in anthropology provides motivated students with the opportunity to conduct original research under the mentorship and supervision of a faculty member. The final product of the research will be an honours thesis which students will present in a formal, oral presentation to student colleagues, faculty and interested members of the public.

In addition to the experience and skills you aquire through undertaking an extended independent research and writing project, an honours degree allows for a greater concentration in anthropology. Anthropology courses will take the place of courses in a minor or second major.
