Weekend University

Weekend University is a joint offering between the Faculty of Communication and Culture and Continuing Education that provides an opportunity for a non-traditional student to complete a University degree through part-time study. Courses offered on Saturdays are organized so that students may complete the multidisciplinary degrees (Bachelor of Communication and Culture, Bachelor of Arts in Communication and Culture), as well as the Bachelor of Arts in Communications Studies or Bachelor of Communications Studies, solely through attending classes on Saturdays and in evenings. Minor programs offered through classes on Saturday are: Communications Studies (Faculty of Communication and Culture) and English (Faculty of Humanities). The Faculty of Communication and Culture also accepts the Workplace Learning Minor for its multi-disciplinary degrees (see Continuing Education for details). Students in other programs may access related degree courses through Weekend University as well. Students who begin their studies through Weekend University are not required to complete their degrees through Saturday study, but may access daytime, late afternoon or evening courses across campus on a part-time or full-time basis.

Students wishing to complete a degree through Weekend University are expected to meet all of the requirements for admission to the Faculty of Communication and Culture and the University of Calgary. Students who have missed admission deadlines may be eligible to begin studies as an Open Studies student. This category has registration limits. Please refer to "Open Studies Student" under A.1 Classification of Students in the Undergraduate Admissions section of this Calendar for more information. All students should apply for admission to the Faculty of Communication and Culture as soon as possible.
