Continuing Werklund School of Education Bachelor of Education students pursuing any pathway may apply for the Honours program.
Applicants must meet the admission requirements listed below, and must submit a Change of Program request by February 1st. A supplementary application package will be sent to Change of Program applicants by Undergraduate Programs in Education. Applicants must return this package by March 15th. Admission into the program will be for the subsequent Spring term.
Prior to application, students should review when Honours coursework takes place, as is detailed below in Program Requirements.
Students should also be aware that due to the composition of their degree requirements, completing the Honours Program may require that they take more than the minimum-mandated units required of their pathway.
Students in the Four-Year or Concurrent programs may want to consider utilizing open option, or elective, requirements to fulfill the 9 units mandated for completion of the Honours program as detailed in Program Requirements, below. Students who complete all electives by their eligible term of application, or Concurrent students whose co-degrees may not contain enough open option coursework, will have up to 9 units of elective coursework made extra to degree upon graduation. Students who choose to postpone elective requirements and are unsuccessful in gaining admission to the Honours program must complete any remaining courses in the Spring and Summer Terms prior to entering their 500-level Education (EDUC) courses.
After-Degree students should be aware that their degree contains no elective requirements, and as such, participation in the Honours program will go over the 60 units ordinarily required of their degree.
