Electives

Winter 2022 update

Due to COVID-19, all elective courses will continue to be delivered off campus through the following means:

Remote delivery: Technology-enabled virtual instruction that takes place outside of a physical classroom.

  • Online asynchronous delivery: 100 percent online delivery with independent course completion and no assigned day or time requirements. These hours will be indicated on the right-hand side of your student timetable.
  • Online synchronous delivery: 100 percent online delivery with scheduled day and time course requirements. These hours will be indicated by a computer icon in the box in your student timetable.

Electives provide graduates with the skills and knowledge to succeed in all life paths, not just in their chosen career field.

Elective courses cultivate critical and creative thinking skills, civic engagement and knowledge of the broader world of arts, culture and science.

Become an engaged citizen, aware of yourself and the world around you, confident, curious and ready to make your mark.

Our requirements follow mandates from the Ministry of Colleges and Universities' Framework for Programs of Instruction (pdf) and the Postsecondary Education Quality Assessment Board’s (PEQAB) Manual for Public Organizations.
