Honours BA Archaeology in Combination with another Honours BA Program

The combined Honours Archaeology program consists of a minimum of 20.0 credits, of which a maximum of 6.0 may be at the 100 level. A minimum of 9.0 credits must be taken in Archaeology-approved courses. The student must take the core courses and those required in one of four specialized areas: classical, near eastern, North American historical/industrial or North American Prehistoric archaeology. For progression purposes, and for graduation, the cumulative GPA in Honours Archaeology will be calculated on all required courses specified in the core and in the student's area of specialization.

Students will not be permitted to combine the Classical Stream of Honours Archaeology with Honours Classical Studies.
