China 2+2 students

Honours programs

Economics 2+2 students studying in the Faculty of Arts can choose from one of two honours programs. Follow the links below for detailed program requirements.

Communication Skills requirement: (NOTE: this differs from the Calendar copy but in this one case what is written here is the correct requirement and the calendar does not apply): A passing grade (>=50%) in any EMLS course. Ideally in the first fall term at Waterloo. Not later than in the second term at Waterloo. This is a “special rule” for Arts 2+2 students.


  • 2+2 Economics and Mathematical Economics students may not pursue a Joint Honours plan with Mathematics;
  • 2+2 Mathematical Economics students may not pursue a Minor in Mathematics.
