Joint Degrees of Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science

Students who wish to simultaneously pursue a Bachelor of Arts program and a Bachelor of Science program may do so by completing a minimum of 135 credit hours in courses. A minor program is not required; however, students may complete the requirements for a minor, or an additional (third) major.

Careful planning of courses is crucial to ensure timely completion of the program. Students enrolled in this program, or who plan to enroll in this program, are strongly encouraged to consult regularly with appropriate academic advisors in both the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. It may not be possible to complete the requirements for the joint degrees in the normal time if the decision to embark on the program is delayed.

Students must satisfy all program requirements before they may be granted either the degree of Bachelor of Arts or the degree of Bachelor of Science, and must graduate with both degrees at the same convocation.
