Double Honours Programs may be taken in combinations of two subjects.

The prerequisite structure for courses of this program assumes 9 credit units of Mathematics. The recommended courses are MATH 110, MATH 116, and MATH 164 or MATH 266.

Students interested in entering a Double Honours program should consult advisors in the departments concerned before registering for their second year. Of the 120 credit units required for the B.A. or B.Sc. Honours degree, at least 66 credit units must be at the senior level. Application for admission to Honours is not considered until successful completion of at least 60 credit units with a Cumulative Weighted Average of at least 70% overall and at least 70% in the major subjects. For further details, please see the Academic Information and Policies section.

Of the requirements listed in Major 2, some courses (usually 6 credit units) may be used to fulfill Requirements 1 to 3 of Major 1. If this happens, the result will be that the number of Open Electives in Requirement 5 will be increased accordingly to continue to require a total of 120 credit units for the Double Honours degree.

The major average for Physics as Major 2 will be calculated using the grades earned in all PHYS and all courses listed in the program requirements.

Students must complete at least two-thirds of the Major 2 program requirements (to the nearest highest multiple of 3 credit units) from the University of Saskatchewan to meet the mandatory residency requirement.
