What is a module?
A module is a group or combination of senior courses that a department determines will meet a certain level of understanding or knowledge in a subject area. Admission into a module requires the completion of specific first-year courses, usually with minimum mark and/or average requirements. There are four possible modules of study which are completed after Year 1.
Types of modules:
Only available in an Honors degree, this module consists of 9.0 or more courses, giving students advanced knowledge in a subject area. Some Honors Specialization modules offer a research project/thesis course in Year 4.
Only completed in a non-Honors degree, this module consists of 9.0 or more courses, some of which are at an advanced level.
A major consists of 6.0 - 7.0 specific courses offering students an introduction to a subject area.
Consisting of 4.0 - 5.0 specific courses, a minor gives students a limited introduction to a subject area.
Under 'FACULTIES' in the Academic Calendar, you will find the modules offered by each department, the admission requirements (first year courses and marks) for each module, and the specific courses required to complete the modules.
