5.2 Honours Degrees

Programs are offered leading to the Honours Degrees of Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Business Administration, 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 students 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. For specific details on each degree refer to the appropriate Program Regulations - General and Honours Degree, School of Science and the Environment.
