Honours Program

The BA Honours program in English provides a rigourous and comprehensive education in literary studies. Many graduate schools and professional programs require an Honours degree, and ours is equivalent to those programs at top universities across Canada.


To be eligible for the Honours program, students normally have a minimum of 70% in their English courses or an average of 75% or higher overall.

If you are interested in the Honours program, please contact either the Head of the Department or our Manager of Academic Programs. You can begin the paperwork yourself by completing the Application Form.
