Note: For purposes of meeting program requirements, all foundations courses will count as six credits towards the major or minor.
Students may count a maximum of six humanities credits at the 1000 level for credit towards the major/minor in humanities.
Enrolment in 3000-level humanities courses requires the fulfilment of one of the following requirements: a previous humanities course or permission of the instructor. 3000-level humanities courses with these prerequisite requirements will be clearly identified in the Humanities Supplemental Calendar. Failure to satisfy the listed prerequisite requirement will result in being denied access to the course and/or de-enrolment from the course.
A number of courses in humanities were designed as creative writing courses intended to accommodate students with specific interests in that area. These courses are AS/HUMA 3640 6.0, AS/HUMA 4630 6.0, AS/HUMA 4640 6.0, none of which may count toward a degree in humanities, nor satisfy the interdisciplinary requirements of the Faculty of Arts.
Students wishing to major or minor in humanities must contact the director of Undergraduate Studies, 203 Vanier College, in order to discuss their proposed program of study and arrange for a program adviser with congruent academic interests.
The following interdisciplinary Honours programs are associated with the Division of Humanities: classical studies, creative writing, East Asian studies, European studies, Latin American and Caribbean studies, religious studies, and science and society. Each of these programs are designed to permit students to follow a flexible curriculum of studies with various departments and other area studies programs, along with interdisciplinary courses in the division.
