MCPM 704 - Graduate Seminar
This course comprises weekly seminar sessions and is offered during both the September and January semesters. As least one of the course offerings each year provides students with an opportunity to present ideas pertaining to their research proposals, or the overall research design, methodology and results of a thesis or non-thesis project. The second offering each year may follow a similiar traditional seminar format or may involve a class project related to MCPM. Students are required to attend and participate in all seminars to get credit for the course. (All MSc students must register in a seminar course twice during their program of studies.
