Regulations for Combining Honours with Secondary Programs

Honours students with an area of specialization may choose to organize their elective courses to meet the requirements for a combined honours program, option or minor in a subject other than the honours discipline(s). Additional courses may have to be taken to fulfill these requirements.

Students combining honours disciplines with secondary programs must meet the following regulations:

  1. All requirements for the combined honours program, option or minor, must be fulfilled. (Refer to Regulations Governing Minors.)
  2. The student must achieve a cumulative GPA of at least 4.5 on all courses of the minor subject. If an option or minor requires a higher GPA, that GPA applies.
  3. An honours student with an area of specialization may receive designation for more than one option.
  4. An honours student with an area of specialization may receive designation for only one of the Co-operative Education and Professional Experience Program Options.
