Family Social Science students have an exciting new opportunity to engage in research as part of their undergraduate program. If you are interested in continuing your studies at the graduate level, or in impressing your potential employer with research skills, FMLY 4500 may be right for you.

- enable students to learn in a self-directed manner while under the supervision of an experienced researcher.
- provide research experience in reviewing scientific literature, formulating questions, conducting an empirical investigation, and writing a major report.
- develop knowledge translation skills, such as communicating main results in a presentation held at the end of the course, and/or submit results work for publication.
An application is required and should be completed in consultation with the faculty member who will supervise your thesis.
