Honours Program

The Honours Program in Communication, Media and Film provides the opportunity to undertake an extended research project in an area of interest. The Honours Program is particularly good preparation for graduate school but may also be undertaken for the sake of deep exposure to a particular topic and the honing of research skills. For more information, please visit our Honours Program page.

Overloads or Pre-Requisite Waivers

To request to be placed in a class that is full or a class where you are missing a pre-requisite, you need to fill out a Overload/Pre-requisite waiver request form. After you have completed the form and submitted the form it will take 1-2 weeks for a decision to be made regarding your request at that time you will receive an email with regards to the decision for your request.
