Double Honours Programs may be taken in combinations of two subjects. In this program at least 36 credit units will normally be taken in each subject. 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 Political Studies as Major 2 will be calculated using the grades earned in all POLS courses.

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.

Students who are admitted to a Double Honours program (Political Studies and another subject) must be advised in both departments. Students will fulfill the Political Studies portion of the program as follows:
