In many larger universities, honours students attend a special seminar or write a long essay, but because of our small class sizes, Mount honours students have the rare opportunity to work on a year-long independent research project that culminates in the writing of a substantial undergraduate thesis supervised by a faculty member. Once the research is well under way, students present their ideas at the departmental Honours Colloquium before finishing the writing of their theses at the end of the year.
