Details of Honours and Major programs in the Faculty are presented under the entries of the individual departments offering the programs.
It may be possible for students to arrange for an Interfaculty Double Honours, Joint Honours and Major or Double Major Program. Students must contact the Advising Centre for the Faculties of Humanities, Science and Social Sciences for further information and are strongly urged to do so before registering in courses which they wish to count for credit on an Interfaculty Program. Such programs involve satisfying the Honours and/or Major requirements of two disciplines, both leading to the same degree, in two different faculties. Agreement to details of all such programs must be signed by the student and by representatives of the academic units involved. Students in an Interfaculty Program will be subject to the regulations of the faculty in which they are registered.
Only one Bachelors degree with a Double Honours or a Joint Honours/Major or a Double Major will be awarded on the recommendation of the faculty in which the student is registered.
It may be possible for students to arrange to undertake an Interfaculty Minor in the Faculties of Humanities, Science and Social Sciences. Students must contact the Advising Centre for the Faculties of Humanities, Science and Social Sciences for further information, and are strongly urged to do so prior to registering in courses which they wish to count for credit on an Interfaculty Minor.
A student in one department in the Faculty of Fine Arts may concurrently satisfy the requirements of a program in a second department by completing the program requirements in the second area with the permission of both departments. Only one degree will be awarded. For example, a student majoring in History in Art may concurrently satisfy the requirements for the program in Visual Arts and thereby qualify for a BA with a Double Major in History in Art and Visual Arts. Conversely, a student majoring in Visual Arts may concurrently satisfy the requirements for the program in History in Art and thereby qualify for a BFA with a Double Major in Visual Arts and History in Art. Students interested in taking a Double Honours or Major Program should consult the Fine Arts Advising Centre.
In any case where two different classes of degree result, each class will be tied to the respective discipline instead of the degree, and will be shown in the students academic record.

The Fine Arts Work Experience Program is intended for students in the Faculty of Fine Arts who are enrolled in at least 3 units of courses in the Fine Arts. Students who are not in the Faculty of Fine Arts, but are in interdisciplinary studies with the Faculty of Fine Arts, and enrolled in at least 3 units of courses in the Faculty of Fine Arts, may be considered for the Work Experience Program. Students participating in the Fine Arts Work Experience Program will complete one or two work experience terms, that is, four to eight months of full-time, discipline-related work under the supervision of the Humanities, Fine Arts & Professional Writing Co-op Program. These work experience terms are subject to the general regulations for Undergraduate Co-op programs in the University Calendar, with the exception that Work term credit by challenge is not permitted. Work Experience students may transfer to a regular Co-op program, subject to approval from the Co-op Coordinator. Participation in this program is limited. Students should contact the Humanities, Fine Arts & Professional Writing Co-op office to discuss entry into this program.
