Hi everyone :) I'm at UWO and I'm debating between IMS honours spec/Physiology honours spec or a double major in IMS and Physiology.

I was initially set on the double major because I didn't want to do a research project since I already have research experience outside of school, but would it be easier/lighter workload in any way to do the Physiology honours spec than a double major in both? I also am a little bit concerned about the "common course policy" for the double major. I'm not entirely sure how that works. Right now I'm leaning more towards IMS honours spec, but I saw a chart of required courses for honours spec modules that indicated I have to complete a bunch of chemistry courses before graduation. I've never heard of this before, and it's a lot of 2nd year chem courses. Does anyone know how that works? I want to avoid chem as much as possible after orgo, lol.

  • IMS Honours Spec does not have a 4th year research project
  • IMS Honours Spec only requires first year chem + Orgo I & II as far as chemistry courses go
  • IMS Honours Spec allows you to replace Orgo II with any other 2nd year chem course


If you decide to take a double major, use this website for information about the common course policies:
