Course sequences and prerequisites

Our programs are designed with relatively fixed course sequences. Please note that—particularly during this period of transition between existing and new programs—it is very important to keep to the standard sequences (including the substitutions described below) as much as possible. Minimizing the changes you make to these sequences will minimize problems later. A table of prerequisites is shown below to help with your planning. If it is absolutely necessary to deviate from the planned course sequence, be sure you are prepared to deal with the future changes this may entail.

This is not an exhaustive list of courses; it includes only the compulsory or optional courses (where you have the choice between two or three options, for example between an internal and external practicum). Don’t forget to also add to your schedule the elective courses required for your program.

For information about practicums, please begin by consulting the Frequently Asked Questions at https://arts.uottawa.ca/translation/faq-practicums.
