Bachelor of Arts & Science (B.A. & Sc.)

The B.A. & Sc. degree, jointly offered through the Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Science, is designed for students who have clearly-defined interests in both Arts and Science.

The B.A. & Sc. degree is the only degree at McGill that currently offers an interfaculty program in Cognitive Science. However, the Faculty of Science does offer a B.Sc. Minor in Cognitive Science which can be combined with other Science major areas such as Psychology or Computer Science.

The interfaculty program in Sustainability, Science and Society is also unique to the B.A. & Sc. degree.
