Honours BA Economics with an Option or Minor in Another Field

Students in Honours BA Economics programs may choose to organize their elective courses in such a way as to meet the requirements for an option or minor in a subject other than Economics. Additional courses may be necessary to fulfill these requirements, as well as those of the honours program. The following regulations will apply:

  1. All common and program requirements for the option or minor must be fulfilled. (Refer also to the Faculty of Arts, Faculty of Music, Faculty of Science and/or Brantford Campus chapters.)
  2. The student must achieve a cumulative GPA of at least 4.50 on all courses of the minor subject. This regulation does not apply when a greater minimum GPA is required for the option or minor chosen.
  3. 1.0 credit (or equivalent) taken on a Letter of Permission basis, may be counted towards the minor requirement.
  4. An honours student may receive designation for only one option (other than the Co-operative Education Option).
