The APEC-M-BAH Plan consists of 66.0 units:

  • 27 units of Core courses,
  • 33 units of optional courses
  • and 6 units of support courses.

The Plan, alone, or in combination with a Minor in another subject, and with sufficient electives to total 120.0 units will lead to a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) Degree. (For students admitted prior to September 2017 it is 114.0 units.)

The Arts and Sciences Calendar is the official statement of requirements.  The information provided below is for convenience only.
