Undeclared Arts is an entry option only. By February of your second semester, you must indicate which one of the nine programs you wish to pursue. All program transfers are considered on a competitive basis and are subject to program capacity.
Undeclared Arts is a first-year entry option that allows students time to explore program areas in the social sciences and humanities before choosing the program they wish to pursue over the next three years. The program transfer options for Undeclared Arts students are: Criminology (formerly Criminal Justice), English, Environment and Urban Sustainability, Geographic Analysis, History, Language and Intercultural Relations, Philosophy, Politics and Governance, Psychology, and Sociology. Because these nine programs share a common one-year foundation, all of the courses completed in Undeclared Arts are credited to the student's program of choice.
- Students who have already decided which of the ten programs they are interested in should apply to those programs directly, and should consult the relevant pages of the Undergraduate Calendar for program details.
- Students who are completing, or have already completed post-secondary studies, must apply to one of the ten programs (Criminology (formerly Criminal Justice), English, Environment and Urban Sustainability, Geographic Analysis, History, Language and Intercultural Relations, Philosophy, Politics and Governance, Psychology, and Sociology). Transfer credit/Advanced Standing cannot be granted for the Undeclared Arts Option.
