With 24 majors, Guelph's BA program is one of the most comprehensive and customizable in Canada!

Find your major, choose your minor, and select courses from an extensive list to shape your future on your own terms. Combine different disciplines and take courses from other degree programs (yes, you can do that!), and give yourself a broad understanding of a variety of topics.

The Bachelor of Arts is offered as a four-year Honours degree (BAH) or a three-year General (BAG) degree. The Honours Program consists of a minimum of 20.00 credits requiring the equivalent of 8 semesters of successful full time study. The General Program consists of a minimum of 15.00 credits requiring the equivalent of 6 semesters of successful full time study.

A student may register in Summer, Fall and Winter semesters. The normal course load is 2.50 credits per semester for a full-time student on regular status. Students may register for 0.50 credit more at their own discretion. Part time study consists of 1.50 credits or fewer per semester.
