Students will not normally be admitted to a Second Degree program in any field in which they already possess a degree. Some further restrictions apply to the pairing of majors in the first and second degree as discussed in the 4. Program Details section.

Upon admission to their program, students are advised to contact the Arts Students' Centre to discuss their academic plans, obtain general advice and receive an assessment of the remaining requirements.

Modified Rules and Regulations

The rules and regulations pertaining to 3.4.1 Degrees with a Major Field and 3.4.2 Honours Degree’s with a Major Field remain applicable with the following modifications:

(a) Up to 60 units (10.0 full-course equivalents) counted towards any previous degrees may be used towards requirements in the Second Degree. These may not include more than 24 units (4.0 full-course equivalents) toward the new Major Field.

(b) Courses extra to previous degrees and so noted on transcripts may be counted towards the Second Degree if completed before enrolling in the Second Degree program and if consistent with Faculty regulations.

(c) Of all courses used toward the second degree, at least 60 units (10.0 full-course equivalents) must be taken from the University of Calgary.

(d) The Second Degree will be awarded "With Distinction" or “First-Class Honours” as applicable if a GPA of at least 3.60 is achieved over the courses completed for the Second Degree excluding the previous credit allowed under (a) above.

(e) For a second BA with Honours, admission to Honours will be determined based on the overall grade point average obtained for the final 60 units (10.0 full-course equivalents) in the first degree while the grade point averages required for graduation with Honours will be calculated using the courses completed for the Second Degree.

Co-operative Education

For Major Fields of specialization in which the Faculty of Arts offers Co-operative Education Programs, students may apply for a Second Degree or a Second Degree with Honours that includes Co-operative Education.
