Overview

This diploma allows students to design their own program in a full or part-time academic framework. This program suits students who are either very certain of their educational goals and have further studies in mind, or students who want to explore the potential of post-secondary education.  

To offer flexibility and options, yet still preserve academic structure, the Arts & Science Studies program gives students the choice of 20 (minimum 60 credits) 100-level or higher courses. A minimum of 14 (minimum 42 credits) of the courses must be from disciplines offered by the School of Arts & Science. The School of Arts & Science has a wide range of transferable courses to customize a program of study to meet students’ personal, academic, and career goals.
