Students wishing to study at the Honours level in two disciplines can combine Joint Honours program components in any two Arts disciplines. For a list of available Joint Honours programs, see "Overview of Programs Offered" and "Joint Honours Programs".

Joint Honours students should consult an adviser in each department to discuss their course selection and their interdisciplinary research project (if applicable) in each year of their program.

All Joint Honours students should consult the handout describing the Economics Honours and Joint Honours programs available in the Economics Department Office, Leacock Building Room 443, and at http://www.mcgill.ca/economics/undergraduates/honours.
