Subject: 3 years and Honours

Now most universities require a 4 years Bachelors degree. I would like to know whether a Honours degree can substitute a 4 years degree? Also is it possible to complete your honours degree in 3 years and will this be substituted for a 4years degree. thx

The term "years" is a bit misleading -- it doesn´t actually refer to the length of time you need to study to graduate, it refers to a "year´s worth of academic courseload".

So yes, you CAN graduate with an honours degree in 3 years, but would you really want to do that? Even people who do it in 4 years complain about the insane amount of work, doing it in 3 years will, well, ruin your social life at the least.

Concordia´s Honours Economics Program is 90 credit program which can be completed within 3 years with 30 credits per year. Is this " 90credit/ 3 years" degree accepted everywhere? Many Canadian universities have a 4 years program, so do they have total of 120 credits?

thx
