Concurrent Degrees in Physics or Astronomy and a Professional Program

Are you interested in a professional program such as Engineering or Music? Would you like to study Physics or Astronomy at the same time? If so, consider the Concurrent Degree Program. You can obtain a professional degree and an honors bachelor or bachelor four-year degree in Physics or Astronomy.

Here's how:

Your primary registration will be in the professional program, and you will pay their fees. (If you are currently registered in the Faculty of Science, this can be re-arranged.) You must consult the Dean's office in both the Faculty of Science and the professional faculty for permission to register in the Physics or Astronomy degree with an Honors Specialization, Specialization, or Major module.

For your professional degree, you must complete the specified program in full.

You should consult with the Physics and Astronomy Department to obtain help in selecting courses for your module. Once these are chosen, you will need a complete statement from the Office of the Dean of Science that specifies:

  • The courses that may be credited toward both degrees to a maximum of 10.0, with no more than 5.0 courses from faculties other than Arts, Health Sciences (excluding Nursing), Information and Media Studies, Science and Social Science.
  • The number and kind of courses required to complete graduation requirements for the Physics or Astronomy degree, including all senior courses for the Honors Specialization, Specialization, or Major.

We will be delighted to discuss any of this with you.
