NOTES: 1)The degree of Bachelor of Arts requires completion of a Major program, a Minor program, a set of Core Requirements, and elective courses, totalling at least 78 credit hours in courses offered by departments within the Faculty of Arts (or Computer Science, Mathematics and Statistics, and Psychology). When the degree of Bachelor of Arts is completed jointly with the degree of Bachelor of Commerce (Co-operative):
a) Minor program requirements are satisfied by Business courses specified in Table 1 above.
b) Core requirements for English and Numeracy/Science are satisfied by courses completed in Terms A/B or during Terms 1 or 2 of the Bachelor of Commerce (Co-operative) degree.
c) It is recommended that the Core Requirement for 6 credit hours in courses in a second language be completed in Terms A/B of the Bachelor of Commerce (Co-operative) degree program.
d) Core requirements for 6 credit hours in research/writing courses may be satisfied by including two such courses within the 78 credit hours in courses offered by departments within the Faculty of Arts. Please consult the Undergraduate Registration Procedures booklet to determine research/writing course offerings in any given semester.
e) Major requirements for the degree of Bachelor of Arts may be satisfied in 36 to 45 credit hours, depending on the department or program chosen. Students are strongly recommended to seek advice from the department or program of their Major to ensure that their proposed degree program is possible within the constraints of course scheduling and prerequisites.

2)Students are advised that, in order to complete the joint degrees within the minimum 150 credit hours, they should be prepared to complete at least three of the courses required for the degree of Bachelor of Arts as opportunities arise and as courses are offered. Following Term 2 of the program for the Bachelor of Commerce (Co-operative) degree, these courses may be completed during the Spring semester between Terms 2 and 3, or during any of the three Work Terms (for example, in the evening or by distance), or as sixth courses during any of Terms 3, 4, 5, 6 or 7 (following submission of a course load waiver).

3)To meet the requirements for the degree of Bachelor of Commerce (Co-operative), not fewer than 15 and not more than 30 credit hours in elective courses must be chosen from Business courses (including non-Business courses prescribed for a concentration). Students intending to complete the joint degrees in the minimum number of 150 credit hours should ensure that at least 78 of these credit hours are completed in courses offered by departments within the Faculty of Arts (or Psychology, Mathematics and Statistics, and Computer Science). Careful planning, particularly in the selection of elective courses as well as in the sequence of Major program courses, is therefore recommended to ensure timely completion of the joint degrees.
