Choosing the right program for you

First step

Choose the discipline. Keep in mind your personal interests and the subjects you find most stimulating.

Second step

Choose the program. As with most students who apply to the Faculty of Arts, you will be admitted to a Major program unless you apply to an Honours Bachelor’s with Specialization, a Joint Honours Bachelor’s or a General Bachelor of Arts program or to certain discipline-specific programs (Fine Arts, Journalism, Lettres françaises et éducation, Music, Public Relations).

Third step

Choose the program structure. If you come to uOttawa directly after your secondary school studies and are admitted to a Major program, you will need to choose your complete bachelor’s program structure at the end of your first year. If you have studied at the college or CEGEP level, you may be granted advanced standing for up to 30 credits and be admitted directly into second year. If this is the case, you will need to choose your program structure when you register.
