Suggested course sequences

Course sequences show you which courses you should take for your particular program and in which session you should take them. They help you plan your course schedule. Course sequences are only guidelines; there is more than one possible course sequence for any given program.

Students admitted with advanced standing credits or to the Winter or Spring-Summer session: The recommended course sequences do not take into account advanced standing credits you’ve received, since these vary from one student to another. If your first session is Winter or Spring-Summer, your faculty's undergraduate studies office will be able to help you adapt the course sequence of your program to your particular situation.

Suggested course sequences by faculty

Your faculty's website either has course sequences or information to allow you to access them. To help you identify which faculty your discipline belongs to, we've also included the list of disciplines available by faculty.
