Note: "English" courses include courses in Communications, Creative Writing and Print Futures that transfer to one of the B.C. research universities (SFU, UBC, UBC-O, UVic or UNBC) as English credit. "Arts" courses are available in the Faculty of Languages, Literature, and Performing Arts, and the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. They are designated as "humanities" or "social sciences" in the Associate of Arts Course Classifications table below. Courses in Economics and Mathematics also may be used as Arts electives toward an Associate of Arts Degree. Please see the Associate of Arts Course Classifications table below for further information.

Definitions

A course is defined by the subject for which it is granted transfer credit at one of the research universities (SFU, UBC, UBC-O, UNBC, or UVic).

  1. An Arts course is defined as any course in a subject area for which there is a Baccalaureate of Arts Degree at one of the research universities.
  2. A Science course is defined as any course in a subject area for which there is a Baccalaureate of Science Degree or Baccalaureate of Applied Science Degree at one of the research universities. 
    The requirements specified above are intended to provide breadth of exposure to a variety of disciplines in both Arts and Sciences. In some instances there may be some ambiguity as to whether a course is in the Humanities or Social Sciences and is an Arts course or a Science course. Most Physical Geography and Mathematics would be designated as Science courses.
  3. A course in an "other" area is defined as any course in a subject area for which there is a Baccalaureate Degree other than in Arts, Science or Applied Science at one of the research universities.
  4. first-year course is defined as a course that has assigned or unassigned transfer credit at the 100-level at one of the research universities.
  5. second-year course is defined as a course that has assigned or unassigned transfer credit at the 200-level or higher level at one of the research universities.
  6. laboratory science course is one in which a substantial component of instruction involves the study of natural phenomena, either in the laboratory or in the field.
