Year One of Program

Research Methods

- We advise students to defer completing Research Methods until they have identified a project topic for the dissertation. Research Methods can be taken in the second year of the programme concurrently with Dissertation Part A (2073), or in the semester prior to enrolling into Dissertation (GEOM2072).

- If you are searching for a project topic, please contact Academic Services, and ask that they contact your Program Manager and make an appointment to discuss some options.

- If you defer enrolling in the Research Methods course until year 2 of the programme, replace it with a course that contributes to meeting your Geospatial Science Options course requirements or your Options Course requirements, and which you would normally complete in year 2 of the programme.
