What is a Bachelor's Degree?

A Bachelor’s Degree is a 40-course, 120-credit-hour program that includes a set of core requirements (designed to achieve breadth), one or two majors (to achieve depth), and electives (free choices). A degree may also include one or two minors and some degrees allow for specialized concentrations.
 

What is a Bachelor's Degree with Honours?

Honours programs allow more specialization than is possible in a Bachelor’s degree. These degrees are designed for students who wish a deeper insight and more intensive training in their major subject area, and who are able to meet the higher standards set. Students interested in entering an honours program should consult their Department Head as early as possible in their academic program, so that the program of studies may be planned in conformity with the requirements of the proposed honours program. Honours programs may include additional classes, individual research, written or oral defense of projects, and more depending on the subject area.
 

What is a Diploma?

A Diploma is a 20-course, 60-credit-hour program that typically satisfies the core requirements for a four-year Bachelor’s degree. Students will study a relatively wide range of subjects that are general to all walks of life rather than specific to a particular profession or trade.
