Geophysics

Honours

Honours in geology or geophysics is a one-year program embedded within the Bachelor of Advanced Studies or as a standalone program. It includes a 36-credit point research project that provides the opportunity to examine events from the deep past through to the present and into the future by harnessing Big Data and computer-based models. Students will also complete two 6-credit point coursework units that will aid in the development of fundamental research, ethical and communication skills. The Honours program will provide students with the opportunity to develop real-world research skills and learn how to apply them not only to a specific topic but also to future challenges.

Honours in Geophysics is available to students with a major in Geophysics or a major in an area relevant to the research project. Admittance into the program is determined by the Faculty of Science as well as the honours coordinator.
