The programs for the Bachelor of Arts and Science degree are jointly offered through the Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Science. They are intended for students who have a deep and clearly-defined interest in studies that are rooted both in Arts and in Science.
All these programs carry roughly equal weight in courses in Arts and in Science and students in the BA&Sc must therefore commit themselves to this duality. Consequently, this degree is definitely not recommended for students who are undecided and who may later want to choose either an Arts discipline or a Science discipline.
The breadth that is characteristic of the BA&Sc programs necessarily comes at the expense of depth in the Arts and the Science components viewed separately.
There are four types of programs within the BA&Sc:
The Multi-Track programs combine a Major Concentration in an Arts discipline with a Major Concentration in a Science discipline.
The Interfaculty programs are interdisciplinary in nature. There are currently three such programs: Environment, Cognitive Science, and Sustainability, Science and Society. In order to maintain a balance of Arts and Science in the program, at least 21 credits must be from each of Arts and Science.
The Joint Honours programs are similar to the multi-track programs except that students complete two Honours components, one in Arts and one in Science. The only Science Joint Honours Components are in Mathematics and Psychology, but there are many Arts Joint Honours Components to choose from.
