The Bachelor of Arts (BA) is a well-established, foundational degree recognized both across Canada and around the world. A general education component that helps students develop a broad base of knowledge and skills is central to the degree. Students also specialize in the theory and methods of selected fields of study. The B.A. degree encourages students to develop a broad sense of citizenship, international experience, a uniquely interdisciplinary perspective, and it prepares students for entry into various professional schools (e.g. education, law, social work), employment in various careers, or graduate-level training and research.
The following three types of B.A. degrees are available:
New students are normally admitted into the BA-Major program (120 credit hours). Alternatively, students may choose the BA-General program (90 credit hours). Students wishing to complete a BA-Honours program may seek admission at a later stage provided they have achieved a minimum Grade Point Average of 3.00.
The Bachelor of Arts Breadth Requirements are designed to expose students to a variety of perspectives and give them knowledge and skills that will serve as a foundation for their subsequent education, regardless of their program(s). First year students must complete six (6) credit hours toward the breadth requirements during their first thirty (30) credits. Transfer and articulation students who have not fulfilled their breadth requirements must also complete at least six (6) credit hours in their first thirty (30) credits. All students must complete the B.A. Breadth Requirements before they graduate.
This is a six (6) credit hour course and no other philosophy course satisfies this requirement.
