Courses Outside the Faculties of Arts and of Science
The following regulations apply to students in the B.A. & Sc. who want to take courses outside the Faculties of Arts and of Science:
- Regardless of your minimum credit requirement toward your B.A. & Sc., you are allowed a maximum of 12 credits in ELECTIVE and/or COMPLEMENTARY courses taken in faculties other than the Faculties of Arts and of Science.
- Students in certain designated programs that include a number of REQUIRED and COMPLEMENTARY courses in other faculties are permitted a maximum of 30 credits outside the Faculties of Arts and of Science. These programs are the Interfaculty and Honours programs in Environment, the Minor concentration in Environment, the Interfaculty and Honours programs in Sustainability, Science and Society, and the Major concentration in Geography (Urban Studies).
- Any courses taught at McGill University may be used toward the maximum allowed, except for courses taught by the School of Continuing Studies, for which you receive credits only in Continuing Studies (see the SOUSA website for a list of approved courses: mcgill.ca/science/undergraduate/handbook#basc-continuing).
- For the purpose of this policy, courses taught in other faculties and specifically listed in Faculty of Arts > Undergraduate or Faculty of Science > Undergraduate are considered as courses taught in the Faculties of Arts and of Science.
- The maximum number of credits allowed will be strictly enforced.
