General Arts and Science – Liberal Arts UOIT Transfer

Program Description

This two semester General Arts and Science Liberal Arts UOIT Transfer stream is designed for individuals interested in pursuing advanced standing into Year 2 of UOIT’s Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Criminology and Justice, Legal Studies, Community Development and Policy Studies or Communication and Digital Media Studies.

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 with advanced standing into Year 2 of the Bachelor of Arts (Honours) degree Liberal Arts programs. It is important to note admission based on minimum admission requirements is not guaranteed and that UOIT will give preference to applicants with the best qualifications.

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.

PLEASE NOTE:

  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 GAST 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.
