Department of Geography and Environmental Studies

Undergraduate Honours Theses

Theses created prior to 2013 are linked to an abstract page. Hard copies are available in the Patrick Power Library general collection. The department also retained a hard copy of those theses.

In 2013 the library switched to submission of theses in PDF format, and hard copies are no longer printed. The link for students from 2013 is to an abstract and a PDF of the complete thesis contained in the Patrick Power Library Archives.
