Honours BA Christian Studies & Global Citizenship in Combination with another Honours BA Program

The combined Honours Christian Studies & Citizenship program consists of 20.0 credits, of which not more than 6.0 may be at the 100 level. The program must include at least 8.0 but no more than 10.0 credits in Christian Studies & Citizenship.

Required Courses (3.0 credits):
Four of the following: GC101, GC102, GC201, GC202, GC203 and GC204 for 2.0 credits;
and GC401* for 1.0 credit.

Other Requirements:
4.0 credits in GC courses at the 200 level or above;

Language Credit Requirement (1.0 credit):
In addition to the Christian Studies & Global Citizenship course requirements above, students must also complete 1.0 credit in non-English language study. Language courses may be taken:
(a) at WLU,
(b) at other recognized universities in Canada on a letter of permission, or
(c) abroad on a letter of permission and with the prior written consent of the Christian Studies & Global Citizenship Program Director.
Courses taught in English may not be counted as a substitute for this requirement. Christian Studies & Global Citizenship Majors may count up to 1.0 credit of senior language study toward the senior Christian Studies & Global Citizenship credit requirements for the degree. For Christian Studies & Global Citizenship Majors who take 100 level language courses during Year 2, Year 3 or Year 4, and who have already accumulated 6.0 junior credits, these courses (up to a maximum of 1.0 credit) will not be counted toward the maximum 6.0 limit on 100 level credits. Students who are actively in the process of learning English as a second language in the course of their studies at Laurier may apply to have this language credit waived by the Christian Studies & Global Citizenship Department.

Global Citizenship Experience:
Students interested in a Global Citizenship Experience enroll in GC398 and must be in either the honours or combined honours program, have completed at least 2.0 GC credits at the 200 level, and have attained at least a 7.0 (B-) average in their GC courses. Students are able to pursue further opportunities in a GCE by enrolling GC399.
