Joint Honours


Joint Honours students must maintain a GPA of 3.50 in their program courses and, according to Faculty regulations, a minimum CGPA of 3.00 in general.

Minimum number of credits (unless otherwise stated)

The course selection for the program must satisfy the following requirements:

  • Joint Honours program (Anthropology portion) 36 credits
  • 200-level courses in Anthropology, maximum 12 credits
  • 300-level courses in Anthropology, minimum 6 credits
  • Core courses in Anthropology (350-level), minimum 9 credits
  • 400- and 500- level courses in Anthropology, minimum 6 credits
  • Honours thesis 3 credits in Anthropology

Students interested in Joint Honours should consult an adviser in their other Department for specific course requirements. A form will be supplied by the Anthropology Department to keep track of courses required by both departments for the program selected.

Students who wish to study at the Honours level in two disciplines can combine any two Joint Honours Components from the Arts Faculty.

Prior to registering for each Joint Honours component, students must see advisers in the respective departments for approval of their selection. Departmental advisers will only approve combinations that are feasible, given the nature of the research project that would be involved. Students who neglect to obtain prior approval may jeopardize their graduation.

For the Honours project, students register for a 3 credit, ANTH 491 - Joint Honours Thesis , course. For information on the requirements for the other discipline making up the Joint Honours program, consult the department concerned.

For more information on these programs, consult an appropriate adviser on the Undergraduate Committee of the Department, through the Student Affairs Administrative Service Center, in Leacock Building, room 712, tel: 514-398-6868.
