eCalendar Content Syndication

eCalendar content syndication is a way to avoid content duplication. Simply by typing a short code into your McGill website, you can reflect any program or course information, as well as any general information that appears in the McGill eCalendar.

This code, or short-tag, will not change from year to year (unlike urls), and will automatically update content according to updates in the eCalendar. This will save website managers and departments resources otherwise spent updating this info, since the short-tags will always reflect the official version and pull in updates as soon as they’re approved and processed by Enrolment Services.

Please refer to Knowledge Base article 2723 for instructions and further information, including how to find specific short-tags, or contact ecalendarsupport [dot] es [at] mcgill [dot] ca.

    Faculty of Arts Degree Requirements

    Each student in the Faculty of Arts must be aware of the Faculty regulations as stated in this publication and on the McGill, Arts, and Arts Office of Advising and Student Information Services (OASIS) websites.

    While departmental and Faculty advisers and staff are always available to give advice and guidance, the ultimate responsibility for completeness and correctness of your course selection and registration, for compliance with, and completion of your program and degree requirements, and for the observance of regulations and deadlines, rests with you. It is your responsibility to seek guidance from Arts OASIS if in any doubt; misunderstanding or misapprehension will not be accepted as cause for dispensation from any regulation, deadline, program, or degree requirement.

    To be eligible for a B.A. degree, you must fulfil all Faculty and program requirements as indicated below:

    Geography Admission Requirements and Application Procedures

    Admission Requirements

    M.A. and M.Sc. Degrees

    Applicants not satisfying the conditions in Graduate Admissions and Application Procedures, but with primary undergraduate specialization in a cognate field, may be admitted to the M.A. or M.Sc. degree in Geography in certain circumstances. In general, they, and others who have deficiencies in their preparation but are otherwise judged to be acceptable, will be required to register for a Qualifying program or to undertake additional courses.

    Ph.D. Degree

    Students who have completed a master's degree in Geography (with high standing) may be admitted at the Ph.D. 2 level.

    On rare occasions, a student may be admitted to the Ph.D. degree without having first taken the master's degree. They, and others who have deficiencies in their preparation but are otherwise acceptable, will be required to register for a year of coursework and/or be required to take extra courses. The normal duration of a program, including field work where required, is three years.

    Normally, the Department will restrict admission to the Ph.D. program to students prepared to work in one of the fields of human or physical geography in which specialized supervision is offered. These, which cover a wide range of systematic areas, are listed in documents available from the Department.

    Application Procedures

    McGill’s online application form for graduate program candidates is available at www.mcgill.ca/gradapplicants/apply.
