Academic Counselling and Course Selection

Academic Assistant to the Dean, Faculty of Arts: Jane Osborne, ext. 3299,

Although academic advising is available within each department, it is solely the responsibility of students to ensure that they are properly registered and meet course requirements and the requirements of the program for which they are registered. All students should review the Undergraduate University Regulations chapter and the relevant program requirements and course information carefully.

Academic counselling is available from the chairs of departments, undergraduate advisors and program co-ordinators. In making course selections and choosing programs, all students are advised to consult the regulations that follow, course descriptions for prerequisites, and the specific regulations governing their selected programs of study.

Students in degree programs are advised to complete the required introductory courses for a variety of possible honours majors prior to Year 2, and to fulfill the required prerequisites for senior courses.

Students in honours programs and combination honours programs must have their program approved by the appropriate department or co-ordinating committee prior to each academic year. All students are responsible for selecting courses that satisfy the requirements of their degree program(s).
