This program is pending final approval by the Ministry of Advanced Education.

A student in the Bachelor of Design may apply to undertake an 18 credit Minor in Arts or a 30 credit subject-specific Minor in Arts as noted below.

An 18 credit Minor in Arts must comprise courses in the Faculty of Arts that are for credit toward a B.A. degree and must consist of a minimum of 18 upper-level (300-400) credits in a single subject or field of specialization. Students should design a coherent and academically sound course of studies for the proposed Minor. The program must be approved by an Advisor in the Bachelor of Design Office. Upon successful completion of the minor program, the notation ‘Minor in Arts’ will be noted on the student’s academic transcript.

A 30 credit subject-specific Minor comprises courses in a specific Arts discipline’s major, minor program or field of specialization, requiring the completion of at least thirty credits in a single subject or field of specialization, of which at least 18 credits must be numbered 300 or higher. The proposed course of studies must be approved by the Chair of the Bachelor of Design or his or her designate following approval from an advisor from the appropriate unit within the Faculty of Arts. Upon successful completion of the 30 credit Minor program, the subject specific Minor or field of specialization will be added to the student’s academic transcript by including the notation 'Minor in [Subject]’.
