First Year at a Glance

The General Arts program strives to overcome the restrictions of traditional programs by allowing as much latitude as possible when choosing courses. Therefore, first year requirements are very flexible and driven by your interests. 

Out of the fifteen courses you will complete to successfully obtain your BA, no more than four may be taken outside of the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities and the Faculty of Science and Environmental Studies, as well as the Faculty of Education if you are pursuing a joint Native Education degree. If you wish to major after first year, these requirements will change based on your field of choice.
