Section 3: University 1 Course Requirements
3.6 Courses Available to University 1 Students
The complete list of courses available to University 1 students is found in the Appendix at the end of this chapter. The University 1 course list includes all introductory courses offered by the Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Science, as well as introductory level courses offered by many other faculties and schools. All courses required for entry to target faculties and schools are included as well as courses that may be taken as electives. The course list may also be found in the University 1 Start Book however this list includes only those courses being taught during the Fall 2009 and Winter 2010 Terms.
Courses appearing on the University 1 course list are approved for credit in University 1 and are acceptable for credit in all target faculties and schools, with the exceptions of English: ENGL 0930 and ENGL 0940, which are not acceptable for credit in Engineering, Nursing, or Pharmacy; and Interdisciplinary: ARTS 1110 and Mathematics: MATH 1520, which are not acceptable for credit in Engineering. Biology: BIOL 1110 may not be used as a Science course (for admission purposes) for the Faculty of Nursing.
Students may seek permission to take courses that do not appear on the University 1 course list. Courses that are not on the University 1 course list may not be acceptable for credit in all faculties. This means that, although a grade is awarded in the course and it appears on the student’s academic record, it might not be used for degree credit by the faculty or school to which the student is admitted. The granting of credit for courses not on the University 1 course list is at the discretion of each faculty or school. Consult the University 1 Student Help Centre for information about specific courses.
Returning University 1 students may be able to structure their course selection so that they can complete the admission requirements for their target faculty or school and begin to work on Year 2 degree requirements. See the target faculty’s chapter in this Calendar or the Academic Advisors at the U1 Student Help Centre for help with course selection. Students may also be referred to the advising office of the target faculty.
3.6.1 Introduction to University: ARTS 1110
Introduction to University (ARTS 1110) is a three credit hour course that satisfies the written English requirement. It is designed to help students make the transition from high school, college or work-place to university. ARTS 1110 may help students adjust to university life more quickly, offering a unique combination of educational principles, practical skills, regular assignments, and the support of a group of fellow students. Features of ARTS 1110 include: strategies for academic success; introduction to libraries and research methods; instruction and extensive practice in effective writing, from first draft to finished work; and exercises in critical thinking. ARTS 1110 is normally only available to students who have completed fewer than 12 credit hours of university level courses prior to the Fall 2009 and Winter 2010 Terms.
