Written by Colleen Decoste, Honours Bachelor of Behavioural Psychology Fourth-Year Student
With the 2022-2023 academic year ending, fourth-year students from the Honours Bachelor of Behavioural Psychology (BPSYC) degree program gathered to present their thesis posters in the upper concourse of the College. The theses presented varied greatly in topics, specific fields, and overall projects. Some students completed research for their thesis, while others created manuals or workshops to implement at their designated placement agencies. The fourth-year students had been working on their theses since September while completing full-time placement. These students could finally share their findings and hard work while celebrating the great accomplishment of finalizing their thesis and finishing their fourth year of the degree program.
In addition, to wrap up the poster gala, two students who completed a research thesis were awarded for their research (including the design, implementation, findings, etc.). The runner-up award was presented to Tyne McRae, and the first-place award was given to Lily Wallis.
Congratulations to all graduating students in the fourth year BPSYC program, as you have come a long way, put in a significant amount of dedication, and demonstrated motivation.
Thank you to all BPSYC faculty for the support, particularly Marie-Line Jobin, Professor and Coordinator Years 3-4 of the Honours Bachelor of Behavioural Psychology program, for helping us prepare for the gala and set up the day of. Thank you to the A. Britton Smith Centre for Behavioural Studies staff for helping us organize a sufficient time and location for our event and for ensuring those attending the conference had an opportunity to come to our gala.
