Honours Program


Students who are interested in obtaining an Honours Degree in Sociology & Anthropology, which will allow them to further explore and gain expertise in their selected field, are encouraged to apply for admission into the Honours stream in the Bachelor of Arts program.

In the Honours Program, students will complete more courses in the subject area, take part in Honours seminars, work one-on-one with a chosen faculty member who will serve as their Honours Advisor, and complete an Honours Thesis requiring original research. The Honours program allows students to graduate with both a broad and extensive background in their field and with strong and in-depth concentration on a specialized area of interest in their field. An Honours Degree provides excellent training for careers in the student's selected field for those who are planning on entering the workforce, as well as extensive preparation for graduate study for those who are planning on applying to graduate school.

The department of Sociology and Anthropology offers Honours stream options in both disciplines. Students must apply and be admitted to the Honours Program. For more information about each program, please see click on the link below:
