The Faculty of Arts offers three- and four-year multidisciplinary degree programs that provide an opportunity for students to design their own programs with a particular focus. These degrees are multidisciplinary in the sense that they do not have a Major Field. A Minor Field is required to provide a sense of cohort and intellectual focus. For more information, prospective students should visit the Faculty of Arts Website and consult with an Arts Degree Advisor in the Arts and Science Undergraduate Programs Office.

Contact Information and Program Advice

Students should consult a program advisor in the Arts Students' Centre for information and advice on their overall program requirements.

For more specific advice regarding course selection and requirements in the major field, students should consult the subject advisor located in their home Department (consult Department website for contact information).


Prospective students wishing to enter a Multidisciplinary Program must meet the criteria listed in section A.2 Undergraduate Admission of this Calendar. Annual application deadlines are found in A.3 Deadline Dates for Undergraduate Applications for Admission and Transcripts.

Multidisciplinary Degrees With Distinction

The notation "With Distinction" will be inscribed on the permanent record and graduation parchment of any student achieving a grade point average of 3.60 over the final 90 units (15.0 full-course equivalents) of a 120 unit (20.0 full-course equivalent) BA (multidisciplinary) degree, or the final 60 units (10.0 full-course equivalents) of a 90 unit (15.0 full-course equivalent) BCC (multidisciplinary) degree. A student who has taken part of their work at another university or who has transferred into the Faculty may be granted a degree "With Distinction" at the discretion of the Faculty.
