  3. The School of Canadian Studies requires its Combined Honours and Major students to demonstrate proficiency in a language other than English, normally French or an Aboriginal language. Proficiency is normally demonstrated through the completion of 1.0 credits in French (FREN 1100 [1.0], FREN 2100 [1.0], FINS 2105 and FINS 3105 or approved equivalent) or ALSS 1900 (or approved equivalent). For students who consider that they have proficiency in French, the School of Canadian Studies conducts a French language examination in September and January.

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