(Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and Faculty of Public Affairs)

This section presents the requirements for:

Graduation Requirements

In addition to the program requirements listed below, students must satisfy:

  1. the University regulations (see the Academic Regulations of the University section of this Calendar),
  2. the Faculty regulations applying to all B.A. students including those relating to First-Year Seminars and Breadth requirements (see the Academic Regulations and Requirements for the Bachelor of Arts degree in this Calendar).

Students should consult the Institute when selecting courses and planning their program.

Some of the courses listed have prerequisites that are not explicitly included in the program. Students should note that it is their responsibility to ensure that they have completed the prerequisites for any courses that they wish to take.

Other courses with relevant subject matter such as special topics or courses taken on exchange at the University of Ottawa may be substituted, with permission of the Institute.

Institute Language Requirement

The Institute requires Honours students to demonstrate proficiency in at least one language relevant to Africa other than English. The Institute will maintain a list of those languages suitable for meeting this requirement. Students may demonstrate proficiency either through the completion of any first-year course (or its approved equivalent) in a relevant language offered at Carleton or through passing a language proficiency test administered by the Institute. In the case of the language proficiency test, availability of the test in a given language will depend upon faculty resource availability.
