Registration is not accessible through your student center. Please submit a Modification/Cancellation of Enrolment form through the online form portal. You have until June 30th 2022 to submit your enrolment form for registration to the 2022-2023 academic year. 

You will find below the list of full-time professors who are available to supervise 4th year undergraduate honours thesis students. This list also includes cross-appointed faculty members, emeritus professors, and clinical professors who have been approved.  In order to be able to monitor and ensure a training of high quality, only professors appearing on this list will be authorised to supervise honours thesis.  The maximum number of Honours theses that a professor can supervise in 2022-2023 appears in italics. Once the maximum number of students that we can supervise in 2021-2022 is achieved, that is 90, students will not be able to register anymore.  

Please note, that the students that are officially registered will have until August 14th to find a supervisor and to communicate the name of their supervisor to the Honours thesis Coordinator, Hélène Plamondon ([email protected]). The students should include their supervisor in their message so that they can confirm that have agreed to supervise their Honours thesis.

Students who are not successful in finding an Honours Thesis supervisor by August 14th will have to withdraw from the Thesis.

Finding an Honours Thesis supervisor should be done only when all eligibility criteria are fulfilled. 

  • Consult the list of Honours Thesis supervisors for 2022-2023 (PDF, 195Ko)
  • Approach the professor(s) who have an area of research that interests you, by communicating with them via e-mail, to ask for an appointment. During that meeting, you will have to establish the modalities and the research to begin. This approach is normally done starting in June.

When you are registered to the course, you will have access to Brightspace developed for the Honours Thesis in Psychology.
