Honours BA Christian Studies and Global Citizenship in Combination with another Honours BA Program
The combined Honours Christian Studies and Citizenship program consists of 20.0 credits, of which not more than 6.0 may be at the 100 level (14.0 senior credits must be taken for the degree). The program must include at least 7.0 but no more than 10.0 credits in Christian Studies and Citizenship. Of the 7.0 GC credits, 6.0 must be 200 to 400 level.
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 GC Requirements:
4.0 credits in GC courses (3.0 must be 200 to 400 level);
Language Credit Requirement (1.0 credit):
In addition to the Christian Studies and 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 and Global Citizenship Program Director.
Courses taught in English may not be counted as a substitute for this requirement. Christian Studies and Global Citizenship Majors may count up to 1.0 credit of senior language study toward the senior Christian Studies and Global Citizenship credit requirements for the degree. For Christian Studies and 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 and 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.
Degree Program Electives: An additional 13.0 credits toward the degree total of 20.0 credits, which includes the second BA major and no more than 3.0 GC credits.
