Thesis Requirements

Graduate students should consult the Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies website, and more particularly the guidelines for thesis preparation and submission, for regulations and updated information pertaining to their program of study.

Each student in the MSc Thesis Program will have a Research Advisory Committee consisting of the research supervisor and two or three other staff or invited members. This Committee will evaluate the research proposal and monitor student progress.

A research proposal must be submitted, in writing, to the Research Advisory Committee no later than the end of the second semester of the program. If the proposal is approved, the student may continue in the program. If it is inadequate, a revised proposal must be submitted within three (3) months. Upon its approval, the student will complete the research work and be required to present the results at a Faculty seminar before a thesis is written for submission to the Thesis Office of GPS.
