The University of Guelph’s College of Arts (COA) and College of Social and Applied Human Sciences (CSAHS) are launching an online bachelor of arts general degree.
Registration for the three-year online degree is now open for the fall semester.
Dr. Gwen Chapman, provost and vice-president (academic) and former dean of CSAHS, said she is “thrilled to see this program officially launch and excited to see the ways it will fulfill our mission to offer an accessible, inclusive and intellectually engaging environment for students to learn.”
Dr. Samantha Brennan, dean of COA, said the online BA extends the University’s history of excellence in distance education and sharpens its focus on meeting the needs of students by providing more flexibility.
Students may take a range of subjects across the humanities and social sciences and will be able to choose their path of study and their pace. They can also choose to take courses in-person at any point in the program.
Students who wish to distinguish their degree can complete up to three certificates in business, communication, or public policy and administration.
