Degree Options & Requirements

Beyond choosing to study Information Technology, you’ve got the option to customize how you learn. You can select the length and depth of specialization within your degree—whether it’s through a three-year Bachelor of Arts or one of our more intensive four-year honours bachelor’s program streams. If you’re weighing two subjects of interest but can’t make a decision, you’re able to declare a major, which would be your primary area of study, as well as a minor, or secondary subject. Or give them equal billing and go for a double major. Whatever path you envision, you’ll have choices to accommodate you along the way.

Not sure which courses you need to enrol in to complete the requirements for your degree? The checklists below are intended as guides to help you select which courses you need to take.


Choose the checklist for the year you began your study. These checklists do not provide official confirmation of your eligibility to graduate. To find out which courses you have already completed toward your degree, use the Degree Progress Report. For more help, contact your academic advisor.
