Additional Information

  1. An Honours BA Mediterranean Studies student cannot complete a combined program with the Honours BA Languages program because their requirements overlap considerably. The two areas of specialization can only be completed as consecutive degrees.
  2. It is highly recommended for students to go on an exchange abroad at some point during their studies for at least one term. Destinations that complement this program include: France, Italy, Northern Africa, Spain, or other Mediterranean countries, with the permission of the department and Laurier International.
