General Majors

What is a General Major?

Unlike a single discipline major, a General Major allows you to customize your course selections to your interests by choosing three areas in either the Humanities, the Sciences or the Social Sciences.

This multidisciplinary approach gives you a wider contextual perspective as the courses you choose will enhance your focus on a specific topic and provide a “bigger picture” view of one particular theme.

As a General Major, you’re not limited to studying only within your three streams. As part of your Liberal Education, you will be required to take classes outside your major(s). This allows you to develop skills and experience in all three streams (Humanities, Social Science & Science).
