Diploma in University Studies – Leading to a Bachelor of Arts

The MCC Diploma in University Studies program leading to a Bachelor of Arts provides courses that allow a student to complete the first two years for a Bachelor of Arts degree.
While this diploma is modeled after the University of Alberta BA degree requirements, specific arrangements can be made to plan a schedule around transferability to any University. Students must access an advisor at the University of their choosing, with the assistance of their advisor or Student Services, to determine what the specific requirements are for the program they wish to enter. Students can then begin to work toward a major and
a minor within their program.

All students in a B. A program, regardless of major or minor, require 60 credits in the diploma program to graduate. All students need to pass all courses with a 2.0 or better.
