Research in Social and Cultural Geography

Research in Social and Cultural Geography provides senior undergraduate students with the opportunity to work one-on-one with a faculty member in Social and Cultural Geography in an area of interest to the student. Students are expected to conceive and undertake an independent research project in consultation with the instructor, Dr. Priya Kissoon, including: an extensive literature review; the University's ethical review process if the research involves human subjects; and submission of a major paper written to the technical standards of a geographical journal. Students will work with Dr. Kissoon to create a plan of study with deadlines, adherence to which will comprise part of the evaluation process. Evaluation of the research process is also based on a reflexive research journal, participation in WebCT and class discussion, an oral presentation, and submission of a final paper.
