Bachelor of Arts and Science

Interfaculty Programs

There are two Interfaculty Programs offered through the McGill School of Environment, one of them in partnership with the Department of Geography:

  1. The Interfaculty Program in Environment; and,
  2. The Interfaculty Program in Sustainability, Science and Society. This program is offered in partnership with the Department of Geography.

For information on the BA&Sc degree requirements, see the University's "Programs, Courses, and University Regulations" e-Calendar. The Science Office for Undergraduate Student Advising (SOUSA) website provides Arts&Science students with general academic information and advice about issues such as faculty and degree requirements, registration issues, interfaculty transfers, study away, academic standing, and graduation.


Restrictions on Courses taken Outside your Faculty, and on Statistics Courses

Courses taken Outside your Faculty

There are some important rules regarding how many courses you can take outside of the Faculty of your degree. Bachelor of Arts and Science (BA&Sc) students are restricted to a maximum of 30 credits outside of Arts and Science (only 12 of which can be electives). Refer to the Science Office for Undergraduate Student Advising (SOUSA) website for further details.

Note that students will receive no warning if they register for too many credits outside Arts and Science, the course will simply be flagged for "no credit", and no refund will be given.

These limits do not include the ENVR Core courses, regardless of where they are taken.


Statistics Courses

There are many statistics courses offered at McGill that are similar enough to each other that a student will not receive credit for more than one of them, even if taken by mistake. Students in the BA&Sc Interfaculty Program Environment should choose one of the five statistics courses listed. Minerva will not warn you if there is an overlap in courses.  You simply will not receive credit for the course. Therefore, if you have taken, or are considering taking, other statistics courses at McGill, you should check the Calendar or ask kathryn [dot] roulet [at] mcgill [dot] ca (Kathy Roulet), the MSE Program Advisor, to ensure there is no restriction.
