In addition to existing explicit Joint Honours plans, many Honours plans may be combined within and between Faculties. However, before embarking on a Joint Honours plan, students are required to consult with the Undergraduate Advisors of both programs. Students must meet the requirements of both plans as stated in the Calendar and should be aware that combining some Honours plans may require more than the normal number of academic terms to complete. See list of advisors.

Joint Honours X with Biology

Admission into this plan requires an overall average of 65% in the student's home academic plan. Continuation within the Joint plan is contingent upon maintaining an overall average of 60% in the required BIOL courses, as well as meeting the requirements of their home Faculty academic plan.

The successful completion of the Joint Honours X with Biology plan requires the following:

  1. CHEM 120, CHEM 120L, CHEM 123CHEM 123L (or their equivalents).
  2. 6.5 Biology lecture units (13 courses) excluding BIOL 101; 4.0 of these units (eight courses) must be 300- or 400-level BIOL courses.

Note

Students may elect to substitute 0.5 or 1.0 Biology unit, at the 200-level with CHEM 266/CHEM 266L and CHEM 237/CHEM 237L, provided that they are not required courses in their home department/Faculty academic plan.

Any Biology course required for a student's home department/Faculty academic plan cannot be counted towards completion of the Biology Joint Honours plan. If a student's home academic plan includes CHEM 120CHEM 120L and CHEM 123, CHEM 123L as required courses, 7.5 Biology units (15 courses) will be required to complete the Joint Honours X with Biology plan.

Joint Honours X with Chemistry

Admission into this plan requires an overall average of 65% in the student's home academic plan. Continuation within this plan is contingent upon maintaining an overall average of 60% in the required CHEM courses, as well as meeting the requirements of their home Faculty academic plan.

The successful completion of the Joint Honours X with Chemistry plan requires the following:

  1. CHEM 120, CHEM 120L, CHEM 123CHEM 123L (or equivalents).
  2. CHEM 140CHEM 209.
  3. Any two of the following sequences:
  4. Five additional 300- or 400- level CHEM courses.

Joint Honours X with Earth Sciences

Admission into this plan requires an overall 65% in the student's home academic plan. Continuation within this plan is contingent upon maintaining an overall average of 60% in the required EARTH courses, as well as meeting the requirements of their home Faculty academic plan.

Note

This joint plan is not open to students enrolled in Geological Engineering. Any EARTH course required for a student's home department/Faculty plan cannot be counted towards completion of the Joint Honours with Earth Sciences plan. If a student's home academic plan requires any of the non-EARTH courses required by this plan, additional courses must be taken as substitutes and must be approved by an Earth Sciences advisor.

The successful completion of the Joint Honours X with Earth Sciences plan requires the following:

  1. EARTH 121, EARTH 121L, EARTH 122EARTH 122L.
  2. PHYS 111, PHYS 111L; or PHYS 121, PHYS 121L.
  3. CHEM 120, CHEM 120L, CHEM 123CHEM 123L(or equivalents).
  4. MATH 127 (or equivalent).
  5. STAT 202 (or equivalent).
  6. Three of EARTH 123, EARTH 221, EARTH 231, EARTH 232, EARTH 235, EARTH 238, EARTH 260 (1.5 units).
  7. Two additional 200-level EARTH electives (1.0 unit).
  8. Two 200-, 300-, or 400-level EARTH electives (1.0 unit).
  9. Six 300- or 400-level EARTH electives (3.0 units).

Joint Honours X with Physics

Admission into this plan requires an overall average of 65% in the student's home academic plan. Continuation within this plan is contingent upon maintaining an overall average of 60% in the required PHYS courses, as well as meeting the requirements of their home Faculty academic plan. In addition, students must have an average of at least 65% in the lecture courses PHYS 121, PHYS 122, PHYS 124, MATH 114, MATH 127MATH 128 (or equivalents) in order to continue in this joint plan.

The successful completion of the Joint Honours X with Physics plan requires the following:

  1. MATH 114, MATH 127, MATH 128, MATH 227MATH 228 (or equivalents).
  2. PHYS 121, PHYS 131L, PHYS 122, PHYS 124, PHYS 132L, PHYS  232L, PHYS 234, PHYS 236, PHYS 242, PHYS 242L, PHYS 256, PHYS 256L, PHYS 260L, PHYS 263, PHYS 334, PHYS 342, PHYS 358, PHYS 359, PHYS 360A, PHYS 363, PHYS 364PHYS 365.
  3. One 300- or 400-level PHYS elective lab (0.25).
  4. Three 400-level PHYS courses (1.5 units).

Note

This joint is not open to students enrolled in the Mathematical Physics plan or the Applied Mathematics/Physics Option plan offered by the Faculty of Mathematics.
