Program Description

This two semester General Arts and Science Liberal Arts UOIT Transfer stream is designed for individuals interested in pursuing studies in UOIT’s Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Forensic Psychology.

This program will provide an opportunity to develop and refine academic skills and ultimately provide the foundational knowledge needed to help ensure success in subsequent academic studies. This program also allows students to familiarize themselves with life and workload at a post-secondary institution.

Students will be required to complete six (three-credit) courses per semester (12 courses in total). These include five core (or mandatory) courses in Communications (two), Computers (one), Mathematics (one) and Preparing for Academic Success (one). Other prescribed courses in this two semester stream include Canadian Law (one), Canadian Government (one), Psychology (two), Political Science (one), and Sociology (two).

Graduates of this stream who have completed the requisite courses with a minimum average grade of at least ‘B+’ (77-79 per cent), with no individual course below ‘B-’ (70-72 per cent) may apply for admission into Year 2 of the Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Forensic Psychology program.

Individual academic planning assistance is also offered by the student advisor and it is strongly encouraged for students to meet with their advisor before selecting their courses. Some General Arts and Science courses are also transferable to other post-secondary programs.


  1. It is each student’s responsibility to ensure that the courses he or she is registered in are appropriate for the stated admission requirements for future program choices.
  2. Successful completion of the GASF certificate does not guarantee admission into UOIT or other post-secondary programs.
  3. Each educational institution determines its own admission requirements. If you plan to attend any university other than UOIT or a college, please ensure that courses taken meet its admission requirements.
  4. Students must complete BIOL 1841U – Essentials of Biology during their first semester of study at UOIT or during the preceding spring/summer term.
