Program Requirements

The Bachelor of Arts Freshman Program is designed to ensure that students gain a broad foundation for the three-year degree program. It is comprised of 24-30 credits. In the General option, students develop their own program of study using courses from the social sciences, humanities, languages, and/or math and sciences.

This 30-credit option has a core requirement of 18 credits completed by selecting 6 credits in each of three of the four Arts subject categories: social sciences, humanities, languages, and/or mathematics and science. Students select 12 additional credits from approved courses for Freshman students based on their interests. A maximum of 18 credits may be taken in any one area and a maximum of 12 credits may be taken in the courses offered by any one department. For more information, see the Arts OASIS website for newly admitted Freshman students at: http://www.mcgill.ca/oasis.
