Faculty of Arts
Section 4: Basic Faculty Regulations for the Three Programs Leading to a B.A.
For academic regulations related to graduate degrees, see the Faculty of Graduate Studies. For academic regulations pertaining to the following degrees, Baccalauréat ès Arts (Latin-Philosophie), Baccalauréat ès Arts (Spécialisé en français), and Baccalauréat ès Arts (Spécialisé en traduction), which are also offered under the Faculty of Arts but with instruction available only at Collège universitaire de Saint-Boniface, see the Annuaire of the Collège universitaire de Saint-Boniface.
Students are encouraged, prior to reading the faculty regulations which follow, to review the section, General Academic Regulations and Requirements especially as they pertain to the Letter Grade System and the way in which a student's Cumulative Grade Point Average is calculated.
It is highly recommended that all students entering the Faculty of Arts to pursue a degree complete six credit hours in each of five different subject fields within the first 30 credit hours, and that, if possible, they include among those courses the subject fields in which they will probably specialize because future choices may be limited by the initial choice of courses a student makes. Also, students must meet a subject field requirement to qualify for entrance to both the Advanced and Honours programs (see Advanced (or Four-Year Major) Degree Program and Honours Degree Program).
Combinations of courses for the Major, Minor and Honours programs, other than those listed, may be permitted with written consent of the department head or program coordinator and consent from Dean's Office, Faculty of Arts. Similarly, Honours courses may be taken by students in the General or Advanced Major programs with the written consent of the department head or program coordinator.
