Integrated Studies

Students wishing to pursue a pattern of studies which does not coincide with either a single major or a combined major program may choose an Integrated Studies program.

An Integrated Studies Program is offered at both Honours and Pass levels for students whose special interests cannot be accommodated by a major, combined major, BA General Humanities, BA Social Sciences or BSc (Sciences) program. (An Integrated Studies program in Education is not available). A student who chooses an Integrated Studies program must receive prior approval for such a program or any subsequent changes to an approved program from the appropriate Dean.

Program Requirements

A student electing to pursue an Integrated Studies program must maintain a minimum 70 percent major average and 60 percent non-major average in order to continue in the program and to graduate. Additionally, an Integrated Studies program must include a APCO/COSC/MATH credit if the pattern of study includes an emphasis in Science. When choosing a program students should take care that prerequisites for advanced courses are met and that the schedule for cycled courses be considered.

Program Note
1.  In 20 credit degree programs a maximum of eight credits may be numbered 1(alpha)00 to 1(alpha)99; at least three credits must be numbered 2(alpha)90 or above; at least three credits must be numbered 3(alpha)90 or above; and the remaining credits must be numbered 2(alpha)00 or above.
  In some circumstances, in order to meet university degree and program requirements, more than 20 credits may be taken.
