Honours Program

The Honours Program in Computer Science is designed for high achieving students who would like to concentrate their studies or pursue graduate work.

Honours students must complete a larger set of CS courses than are required for the CS Major, including completing an Honours Project during their final two semesters.

Eligibility and Admission

Admission to the Honours program in the Department of Computer Science is competitive and selective.  Before you can apply you must already be a CS Major and have completed a set of courses to a minimum standard. Full details about how and when to apply can be found on our Admissions page.

Required Courses to Complete the Honours

As a component of the honours degree regulations for the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science, as appropriate, you must complete the following courses:
