This minor consists of courses in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and the Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies that are for credit toward a B.A. degree and must consist of 18 upper-level credits. The School of Engineering will provide a list of eligible course codes with some exemptions outlined.
All courses must be acceptable for a B.A. Students should design a coherent and academically sound plan of studies for the proposed minor based on their interests and goals, considering desired upper level courses and their prerequisites when choosing lower-level courses. Students will likely need to take additional lower-level courses to complete the Minor. Minor in Arts courses may be used to fulfill the Humanities/Social Sciences Elective program requirement.
Application to the Minor in Arts is open to all students eligible for at least second-year standing in the Bachelor of Applied Science program. Admission will be based on sessional average in conjunction with a statement of intent to be submitted at the time of application.
Enrolment in the program is limited. Applications for admission must be made through Engineering Academic Services by May 31.
Students might encounter difficulty fitting the courses for the Minor into their program timetable; careful planning is essential, and completion of the Minor program will likely require an additional term or terms beyond that required to complete the B.A.Sc. degree alone. Space in many courses is limited. Admission to the minor does not guarantee access to courses required for the minor. To accommodate scheduling conflicts students may take courses in the Summer Session.
Entry into and continuation in the Minor requires that the student remains in Good Standing. Upon successful completion of the Minor program, the notation “Minor in Arts” will be added on the student’s transcript.
