Are you curious by nature and interested in studying many subjects at the same time? 

Are you hesitant, undecided, and not sure what you want to study? 

The General BA programs are meant for you. They are flexible and provide you not only with a solid general education in a setting known for its vibrancy, but also with the opportunity to take a range of courses in Arts-specific fields (fine arts, humanities, languages and literatures) or even in other faculties. You can also do a minor – but it is not compulsory – in a specific subject, like foreign languages, art history, music, theatre, communication, history, geography, religious studies, linguistics, etc.

Programs are offered in English and in French.

Requirements for this program have been modified. Please consult the 2015-2016 calendars for the previous requirements.

A minimum of 12 course units at the 3000 or 4000 level is required.

A maximum of 36 course units can be taken at the 1000 level.
