The following graduate studies electives have been scheduled for the Winter 2017 term.

Ryerson students wishing to take courses from outside of their home departments may apply to enroll in these courses by submitting a completed Course Substitution Form to their Graduate Program Administrator and obtain approval from Graduate Program Directors/Associate Chair, Graduate Studies from both home and the host programs. Course substitutions are not automatic; Program Directors/Associate Chairs and instructors reserve the right to limit external enrollment in the courses they offer.

Students enrolled at another university may take a course at Ryerson as an Ontario Visiting Graduate Student (OVGS). Please contact your graduate school in your home institution to obtain an OVGS application form and follow the approval process specific to your home institution.

Please note this is not a full list of program required courses or offerings. To enroll in your required courses, self-enroll online, though your RAMSS account as of December 9, 2016, by following the instructions. Detailed course information can be found in the graduate calendar. Winter term classes begin on Friday, January 13, 2017.

All students must have completed the necessary prerequisites. Please contact the appropriate Graduate Program Administrator and Program Director/Associate Chair to confirm your eligibility in this regard.
