Akademia is a first-year program with an integrated arts and science curriculum and a living-learning component based on specially designed residence arrangements. The program will suit qualified applicants who want to pursue a liberal education prior to making a commitment to specialize. Entry to this first-year experience is through the B.A. or B.Sc. degree program, and the admission requirements of these programs will apply. In no circumstances will the average for admission to the Akademia program be less than 75%. For further information contact the Akademia Counsellor and request the program guide.

Continuation of Studies

Upon successful completion of the Akademia experience, students will proceed into semester 3 of the B.Sc. program or apply to transfer to B.A. or another degree program.
