Pave Your Own Path

Concentrations and Specializations

Dive deeper into your program by taking a minimum of three courses in a related area of study. These courses typically count towards the course requirements for your major too. Some examples include concentrations in the Business Administration and Music programs on the Waterloo campus or the Forensic Psychology Specialization on the Brantford campus.


A minor is a secondary area of concentration in a subject different from your honours program. Most of our honours programs can be taken as minors, so there are many options for you to expand your learning in other areas of interest. In addition to our regular program minors, we offer some specialty minors with career-focused learning goals. You can view a selection of these minors below.

An option is an enhanced minor you can incorporate into your degree program. Options range from six to 10 courses and can be added to many of our programs.
