Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) (primary degree) students may be admitted to complete a secondary undergraduate degree within the Faculty of Arts and Science (ASC).  There are two options to do this:

Dual Degree (Concurrent)
A Dual Degree is completed concurrently while the student is registered in the BCom degree.

Second Degree Program (Consecutive)
The Second Degree is completed consecutively after completion of the BCom degree.

For more information on the Dual Degree/Second Degree, please visit the Faculty of Arts and Science website.

Academic Requirements

For students enrolled in a Dual Degree or Second Degree program, courses must be registered under the appropriate program and proper fees paid.  Fees are based on the degree program to which the course is registered, not the type of course.

Change of Course Registration

Students may not transfer completed courses from one degree to another.

Dual Degree students must contact a Commerce Academic Advisor to move any in-progress course from one degree to another if the course is not registered under the correct degree.

Academic Advising

For more details on the Dual or Second Degree program, students are advised to attend one of the Commerce Program Information Sessions. Sessions are offered throughout the year. For more information, please contact the Commerce Office.

BCOM / JD (Faculty of Law)

This six-year combined program capitalizes on the strength of Queen's Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) degree and the rich business law program offered by Queen’s Law.

The BCom/JD degree reduces completion time by one year for undergraduate students admitted to the Bachelor of Commerce degree program at Queen’s. Students entering the third-year of the Queen’s BCom program are eligible to apply through an internal application process at Queen’s. 

Please note the following policies that apply to students in the BCom/JD Combined Program:

  1. The final 9.0 units taken the fifth year of the program must be Commerce, and must be completed at Queen’s. They may not be transferred from another post‐secondary institution. The 9.0 units may include up to 6.0 units of independent study courses.
  2. There are one‐way exclusions for COMM 381 and 382 – these courses may be taken before beginning the combined degree program, but not when students return in the fifth year.
  3. If a student exceeds the maximum 36.0 units of Arts and Science units that can be registered under the Bachelor of Commerce (including any International Baccalaureate (IB), Advanced Placement (AP), or CEGEP credits earned in high school and the 21.0 units of Law accepted in lieu of Arts and Science), those additional units will not count toward the degree requirements for either the BCom or the JD degrees.
