Course Types

Degree requirements in the Faculty of Fine Arts refer to the following categories of courses:

Faculty of Fine Arts students may also satisfy the humanities general education requirement by taking either FA/FACS 1900 6.0 or FA/FACS 2900 6.0. However, if either course is counted as a humanities course, it cannot also be counted in another category.

Non-Fine Arts Electives

In addition to the general education courses, most fine arts students are required to complete additional courses outside the fine arts disciplines. The number of non-fine arts electives required varies according to the major and degree program. Courses taken towards a major or a minor program in the Faculties of Arts, Environmental Studies or Pure and Applied Science will satisfy this requirement.

Fine Arts Electives

All students in a fine arts degree program or an Honours Major/Minor program must complete at least 12 credits in fine arts outside their major discipline. Courses completed as part of a minor program in the Faculty of Fine Arts will satisfy this requirement. Fine arts electives are not required in any Honours Double Major program.

The following creative writing workshop courses may be counted as either fine arts electives, or as non-fine arts electives, but not as both:

  • AS/HUMA 2900 9.0
  • AS/EN 3240 6.0
  • AS/HUMA 3640 6.0
