Requirements for Degree


Honours BA Cultural Studies in Combination with another Honours BA program:

Cultural Studies Minor:

Switching into Cultural Studies/Declaring Cultural Studies as a (Combined) Major after Year 1

Progression in Cultural Studies (Combined Major) is subject to the same expectations as progression in any Honours program at WLU. You can see these expectations here. You may want to pay special attention to the section that reads; "Progression requirements for the honours BA program are based on grade point averages (GPA) obtained from all courses taken and will be calculated on a cumulative basis. For progression, the requirement will be a minimum GPA of 5.00 (C) in each of the honours subject(s) of specialization and a minimum overall GPA of 5.00. For graduation, a minimum cumulative GPA of 7.00 (B-) in each area of specialization and a minimum overall GPA of 5.00 is required."

If you meet the requirements for an Honours program you can declare Cultural Studies as a major by filling out a Program Selection Form available online at: The Registrar's Office will check to ensure you currently meet progression requirements for the program you have selected.

If you have further questions please feel free to make an academic advising appointment with the Cultural Studies Program Coordinator.
