Programs are offered leading to the Honours Degrees of Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science. An Honours degree requires, over and above the requirement of the General degree, a concentration at an advanced level in an approved field, consisting of a subject or subjects of specialization and/or related subjects, and a high quality of work throughout the program. An Honours degree is of distinct advantage to candidates who plan advanced work or careers in their chosen fields and also to those who have a clear commitment to some special field of study. An Honours degree with first or second class standing is, in many cases, a prerequisite for admission to a graduate program.
Admission to the Honours degree is competitive and limited, depending upon available resources. Candidates should consult the criteria established for the program in question. To be considered for admission to an Honours program a candidate shall complete an "Application For Admission to the Honours Program" form. The application must be approved by the Program Chair of the Major before the candidates can be admitted to the program.
A candidate who wishes to enter an honours program is strongly advised to consult the Program Chair at the earliest possible date, as it may not be possible to complete the requirements for the degree in the normal time if the decision to embark on the program is delayed beyond the end of the second year.
Students who have been awarded the General Degree of Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science at Sir Wilfred Grenfell College may convert it to an Honours Degree of Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science by following procedure outlined in 1. above.
Before registering for any semester or any session, the candidate is strongly advised to consult with the Program Chair on the student's choice of courses. Failure to comply with this requirement may result in denial of access to certain courses.
