Queen's School of Computing

The precise requirements for degree plans are listed in the Arts and Science Calendar. In case of discrepancies, the calendar should be considered as the official definition of the Computing degree plans.

In general, a degree plan in the Faculty of Arts and Science consists of required (or core) courses, options, and electives. Electives can be any course in the Arts and Science Calendar. Special permission is needed for an Arts and Science student to take courses from other faculties (Applied Science, Business, etc) as electives, unless those courses are already listed in the Arts and Science Calendar. A student in fourth year with a first class average may apply to take a CISC graduate course in place of a 400-level CISC course. The student must obtain approval from the department and from the course instructor. If the student later enters a graduate CISC program at Queen's, this course can not count toward the graduate degree.
