The primary objective of every honours program is to develop knowledge, appreciation and skills in the student's chosen honours subject(s), while at the same time fostering a perspective on the relation of the honours subject(s) to other disciplines. Honours programs require a minimum of 20.0 credits, and are normally completed over a four-year period.

Honours BA programs are available in biology, computer science, financial mathematics, mathematics and psychology.
