This section presents the requirements for:

A Co-operative Education Option is available with the B.P.A.P.M. degree (consult the Co-operative Education section of this Calendar for details.)

Graduation Requirements

In addition to the requirements listed below, students must satisfy the University regulations (see the Academic Regulations of the University section of this Calendar.)

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

Minimum CGPA Requirements for Graduation

Overall CGPA: 6.50

Major CGPA: 6.50

Language Requirement for B.P.A.P.M.

Prior to graduation, students must satisfy a language proficiency requirement in one of the following ways:

  1. successful completion of an approved French language credit (FREN 1100 [1.0]);
  2. placement at a demonstrated competency level equivalent to satisfactory completion of FREN 1100 [1.0] following a self-assessment questionnaire and interview administered by the Department of French (for students who already possess demonstrated capacity in French);
  3. successful completion of French Immersion in high school or possession of a Bilingual Diploma or Certificate.

Students should note that they will be required to use one of their elective credits if they choose to satisfy the language requirement through an approved French language credit.

For students whose first language is not English, or for students whose Specialization interests require a language other than French, the Language Requirement may be met by substituting another language for French. Permission for substitution may be sought from the Program Coordinator. Students registering in the Specialization in International Studies should note the additional language requirement.

Academic Performance Evaluation

Students in the B.P.A.P.M. are subject to the standard Academic Performance Evaluation (APE) process with the following additions and amendments:

  1. Students are in Good Standing at the first APE if they have a Major CGPA of a least 7.0 and an Overall CGPA of at least 7.0. A student who is not in Good Standing but has a Major CGPA of at least 6.0 and an Overall CGPA of at least 6.0 is on Academic Warning. Students with a Major CGPA of less than 6.0 or an Overall CGPA of less than 6.0 are required to leave the program with the status of Ineligible to Return (ITR) within that program of study.
  2. Students are in Good Standing at any subsequent APE and at graduation if they have a Major CGPA of at least 6.5 and an Overall CGPA of at least 6.5.
  3. Students who do not receive Good Standing at any subsequent Academic Performance Evaluation will be required to withdraw from the program with the statusIneligible to Return (ITR) within that program of study.
