Accounting Specialist (BCom) - ASSPE2676

Rotman Commerce at the University of Toronto offers an innovative curriculum combining studies in management, economics, and the liberal arts for an enriched professional undergraduate experience. The program explores the role of commerce in modern society while developing skill and confidence in analysis, effective communication, and decision making. The Rotman Commerce program offers a Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) degree in three different specialist programs, Finance & Economics, Accounting, and Management.

All programs within the Bachelor of Commerce degree build on a common foundation of business and liberal arts courses. Rotman Commerce students specialize in one of three programs: Accounting, Finance and Economics, or Management. Each program combines courses in management and applied economics with a variety of advanced courses in the liberal arts and sciences. The balance assures graduates of a solid understanding of business and modern society along with a command of critical skills in decision-making and organizational leadership.

Rotman Commerce graduates frequently become economists, accountants, actuaries, financial analysts, marketing analysts, managers of firms and government, or proprietors of small businesses. Some Rotman Commerce students elect to undertake post-graduate studies in the form of further university education: law schools and MBA programs have been particularly favoured destinations of recent graduates.

This is an open enrolment program. A student who has completed 4.0 credits may enrol in the program.

Completion Requirements:

7.0 credits specified as follows:

1. AMS200H1 (formerly USA200H1) and AMS300H1 (formerly USA300H1) (total of 1.0 credit).

2. 1.0 credit from the gateway courses in English ( ENG250H1 and either ENG270H1 or ENG235H1), History ( HIS271Y1), Geography ( GGR240H1 and GGR254H1), or Political Science ( POL386Y1 or the combination of POL347H1 and POL386H1), or Cinema Studies ( CIN270Y1).

3. Three of the following selections:

  • 1.0 credit from the Politics and Economics disciplinary/thematic cluster
  • 1.0 credit from the Society disciplinary/thematic cluster
  • 1.0 credit from the Culture disciplinary/thematic cluster
  • 1.0 credit from the History disciplinary/thematic cluster

4. 0.5 credit in Breadth Requirement Category 5: The Physical or Mathematical Universe, or another 0.5 credit approved by the CSUS Program Director, to fulfill the Quantitative Reasoning competency requirement of the program.

5. Additional AMS/USA courses or courses from the American Studies Program disciplinary/thematic clusters to a total of 7.0 credits, including requirement #4 above.

6. At least 2.0 credits of the student’s 7.0 credits must be at the 300-level or above.

7. At least 1.5 credits of the student’s program must be in American Studies (AMS prefix courses), at the 300- or 400-level.

Recommended Sequence of Courses:

First Year:

Students are encouraged to take any pre-requisites for the gateway course required, and/or enroll directly in AMS200H1 as a first year student. Of the required gateway courses, POL347H1, POL386H1 and POL386Y1 have pre-requisites of a course that deals substantially with politics; students interested in these courses, therefore, should confer with the instructor as to whether their course work includes a pre-requisite for these courses. Other recommended courses at the first year level include: HIS106Y1.

Second Year:

Second, Third, and Fourth Years:

  • AMS300H1, plus other eligible courses, to a total of 7.0 credits.
  • At least 2.0 of these courses must be at the 300-level or above.
  • At least 1.5 of these courses must be in American Studies (AMS prefix courses) at the 300- or 400-level. Courses must be chosen in a way that satisfies the disciplinary/thematic variety described above, plus 0.5 credit in Breadth Requirement Category 5, or another half course approved by the CSUS Program Director, to fulfill the Quantitative Reasoning competency requirement of the program.

*NOTE 1: Other 300+ level courses with 50% or more American content may be allowed; students should seek early approval of program credit for such courses from the CSUS Director.

*NOTE 2: The course designator associated with American Studies is being changed from USA to AMS effective Fall 2021. American Studies courses previously coded as USA are considered equivalent to AMS for purposes of course prerequisites and program completion.

*NOTE 3: POL386Y1 will be discontinued and replaced with POL347H1 and POL386H1 effective Fall 2021.

Animal Physiology Major (Science Program) - ASMAJ1538

Students learn to compare and contrast the physiological systems of different animal species, or of a single species under difference environmental conditions. This experimental science strives to understand how physiological systems allow animals to adapt to their individual and ever-changing environments. Through a systems-level approach, from molecules to organisms, students gain an understanding of how emergent properties arise when physiological components operate as a whole.

After foundational courses in first and second year, students participate in advanced lecture, seminar and laboratory courses, and are encouraged to apply for research project courses in the laboratories of the Department. Course offerings include neurophysiology, respiratory physiology, endocrinology, sleep physiology and comparative cellular physiology.

Asian Canadian Studies Minor (Arts Program) - ASMIN2728

The Minor in Asian Canadian Studies focuses on community-engaged learning that explores how to understand the historical, social, cultural, economic, and political forces that affect people of Asian heritage in Canada. Our interdisciplinary courses connect students with local communities, and every course provides opportunities for students to pursue a choice of research interests. Together we critically investigate and add to knowledge about Asian Canadians.

The category "Asian Canadian" is widely understood to refer to people in Canada of East Asian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and West Asian ancestry.

Students take two required 0.5 credit core courses in Asian Canadian Studies; select from an array of courses in Asian Canadian Studies; and take additional courses related to the larger contexts of Asian Canadian Studies. The Minor in Asian Canadian Studies is easily combined with other disciplines, such as Anthropology, Art, Economics, English, Geography, History, Political Science and Sociology, as well as with interdisciplinary studies such as Contemporary Asian Studies, Diaspora and Transnational Studies, Equity Studies, East Asian Studies, South Asian Studies, and Near Eastern Studies.

Students will be encouraged to take full advantage of the opportunities available through the Canadian Studies Program, including its journal, ImagiNATIONs, produced by and for undergraduate students and its annual undergraduate student conference. The Canadian Studies Student Union is a focal point for social as well as academic pursuits, and is open to students pursuing a Minor in Asian Canadian Studies. Students also can participate in Asian Canadian Studies student events and in the tri-campus Asian Canadian Studies Research network. The Research network brings together professors and students to discuss current research related to Asian Canadian Studies, Asian diasporas, and global Asian migrations. Students in the minor are also invited to participate in the Asian Institute’s Asian Pathways Research Lab that offers research opportunities in Toronto.

Enrolment Requirements:

This is a limited enrolment program. Students must have completed 4.0 credits and meet the requirements listed below to enrol.

Variable Minimum Grade Average
A minimum grade average is needed for entry, and this minimum changes each year depending on available spaces and the number of applicants. The following courses or their equivalents must be completed:

To ensure that students admitted to the program will be successful, applicants with a final grade lower than 60%, or a grade average lower than 70% in these required courses will not be considered for admission. Please note that obtaining this minimum final grade or minimum grade average does not guarantee admission to the program. While it is difficult to predict what will be competitive course marks and average in a given year, based on previous years, the estimate is: course marks = mid 70s; average = mid 70s. The underlying numeric final mark in each of your courses required for program enrolment will be used by the relevant academic unit to determine your eligibility.

Applications from students lacking numerical grades in one or more of the specified prerequisites, or students applying in their second or later years, may be considered on the basis of their entire academic record and the availability of space in the program.

Course substitutions are possible with written permission of the Program Director. Note that the requirements for a co-sponsoring Department’s major can normally be fulfilled with 0.5 to 3.5 additional credits. All Major programs in the co-sponsoring life science departments require BIO120H1, however, it is not formally a part of this Specialist Program's requirements.


(1) The "missing" half-credit of the substitution does not have to be replaced. For details, please refer to the Computer Science Program instructions in this Calendar.


Former BCB students benefitted from taking CSB352H1, Bioinformatic Methods. They also found it to be helpful to take BCH441H1 prior to BCB410H1 due to BCB410H1's R programming requirement.

Biological Physics Specialist

The Biological Physics specialist program focuses on the physical principles that organize complex biological phenomena. How do cells use chemical energy to generate motion? How does diffusion limit the ability of cells to measure the concentration of chemicals? How do neurons transmit and process information? How does blood flow through a beating heart? Biological Physics deals with problems at the interface of Physics, Molecular Biology, and Physiology, and covers the full range of scales, from the molecular, to the organismic. Students in this program will be trained to think rigorously and quantitatively about a wide range of interdisciplinary problems, will be well prepared to work in a variety of fields such as medicine and biotechnology, and will be ready to undertake graduate work in the fast-emerging field of Biological Physics and its related specialties including Immunology, Physiology, Neuroscience, and Bioengineering.

The program is offered as a partnership between the Departments of Physics, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Immunology, and Physiology (referred to as "partner departments"). All students take the Core courses in Physics, Mathematics, Biology, Biochemistry, and Chemistry. The Core also includes a specialized course in Biological Physics ( PHY331H1) and a third-year laboratory course from one of the partner departments. Students then choose one of four Streams (below) consisting of additional courses from the partner departments.

Biomedical Toxicology Major (Science Program) - ASMAJ2573

Biomedical toxicology has emerged as an important science addressing drug safety and the adverse consequences of chemical exposure. The Biomedical Toxicology Major program examines the harmful effects of chemicals on the health and behavior of individuals and society. The safety/toxicity of a wide array of chemicals is examined including pharmaceutical preparations, herbal products, natural toxins, and environmental contaminants, with a focus on their effects on human health. Students learn about basic and clinical toxicology and related areas through lectures, tutorials and class discussions/debates.

This program includes the application of toxicological knowledge and risk assessment and prepares students for a variety of job opportunities following its completion as well as for further study in graduate research or professional programs such as Medicine, Dentistry, and Pharmacy. (Note: Students interested in professional programs should contact the respective faculties to inquire about specific transfer credits.) Many graduates of the Biomedical Toxicology major program pursue careers in scientific research, forensic science, nutrition and food sciences, governmental agencies, consulting agencies, and industrial settings including the pharmaceutical and chemical industries.

Enrolment Requirements:

This is a limited enrolment program. Students must have completed 8.0 credits and meet the requirements listed below to enroll. Students interested in this program should initially apply to the general Major (ASMAJ2675) after their first year of study. Following their second year of study, students in ASMAJ2675 must choose to pursue either the Pharmacology Major (ASMAJ2082) or the Biomedical Toxicology Major (ASMAJ2573).

Students who have completed 4.0 to 7.5 credits cannot apply directly to ASMAJ2573 and must first apply to ASMAJ2675, using the following courses:

Students who have completed at least 8.0 credits and who are already enrolled in ASMAJ2675 may enrol in ASMAJ2573 themselves on ACORN.

Students who have completed at least 8.0 credits but who are not already enrolled in ASMAJ2675 must apply to ASMAJ2573 using the following courses:


Variable Minimum Grade or Variable Minimum Grade Average
A minimum grade and minimum grade average in required courses are needed for entry, and this minimum changes each year depending on available spaces and the number of applicants.

To ensure that students admitted to the program will be successful, applicants with a final grade lower than 65% in any of these courses, or a combined grade average lower than 70% in these required courses will not be considered for admission. Please note that obtaining this minimum final grade and minimum grade average does not guarantee admission to the program.

Applications from students lacking numerical grades in one or more of the specified enrolment requirements, or students applying in their second or later years, may be considered on the basis of their entire academic record and the availability of space in the program. In addition to applying through ACORN, students applying in their second year or later are asked to please contact the department directly at undergrad.pharmtox@utoronto.ca, specify which program you would like to be considered for, and provide your student number. Please consult the Arts & Science Program Toolkit for more information on program enrolment.

Notes:

  • While it is difficult to predict what will be competitive course marks and average in a given year, based on previous years, the estimate is: course marks = mid 80s; average = mid 80s.
  • Students wishing to enroll in this program will initially apply to a general departmental Major (ASMAJ2675) after their first year. After admission, and prior to the start of their third year of study, students will select the focus for their future studies (Biomedical Toxicology or Pharmacology). First and second year courses are the same for all Major programs within the Department (ASMAJ2675/ASMAJ2082/ASMAJ2573).
  • Students cannot combine a Biomedical Toxicology Major program with a Pharmacology Major or Specialist program for their degree.

Please consult the Arts & Science Program Toolkit for more information on program enrolment.

Notes:

  • While it is difficult to predict what will be competitive course marks and average in a given year, based on previous years, the estimate is: course marks = mid 80s; average = mid 80s.
  • Students wishing to enroll in the Biomedical Toxicology Specialist will initially apply to the Joint Specialist in Pharmacology and Biomedical Toxicology (ASSPE2340). After admission, students can then choose to transfer to the Biomedical Toxicology Specialist. First and second year courses are the same for all Specialist programs within the Department (ASSPE2082/ASSPE2340/ASSPE2573).
  • Students cannot combine the Biomedical Toxicology Specialist with either departmental Major programs (Biomedical Toxicology or Pharmacology).
  • Students wishing to enroll after their second year who have taken PCL201H1 will be considered on a case by case basis. Successful completion of pre-requisite courses is required to enroll in upper level program courses. Students may not transfer to the Major program from the Specialist after completion of PCL474Y1 or the Arts & Science Internship Program (ASIP).

Certificate in Black Canadian Studies - ASCER0828

The Certificate in Black Canadian Studies will provide students with an opportunity to study and research the social construction of race in Canada, with a focus on Black Canada and Black Canadians, past and present. This will include attending to structural and systemic discrimination in areas including politics, judicial systems, and the arts, as well as considering counter-narratives and forms of resistance and empowerment enacted by Black Canadian communities. This certificate also offers a specialization that considers the historical roots and contemporary implications of anti-Black racism, as well as movements that are building towards social equity, and future imaginings. While this certificate addresses local and national contexts, it also situates diasporic and transnational frameworks for understanding Blackness in Canada. As a result, the certificate also examines a comparative approach to meaning-making and belonging in solidarity with other forms of racism and oppression.

Enrolment Requirements:

This is an open enrolment Certificate. A student who has completed 4.0 credits may enrol in the Certificate.

Completion Requirements:

(2.5 credits)

  1. HIS265Y1

Certificate in Business Fundamentals - ASCER2400

The purpose of this certificate is to provide all interested non-Rotman Commerce students in the Faculty of Arts & Science with an opportunity to obtain some basic business knowledge as part of their degree. This could be beneficial for all disciplines within the Faculty of Arts & Science as many students go on and work in a variety of businesses and industries or want some general understanding of management disciplines when entering the workforce. This will better equip students when going on the job market by helping them signal some business knowledge and greater career readiness.

The certificate is offered by the Rotman School of Management and is composed of 2.0 credits that can be taken as part of a student's elective courses within the 20.0 credits that are required to complete a Bachelor’s degree in the Faculty of Arts & Science. This certificate and included courses are not open to non-degree students.

Enrolment Requirements:

This is a limited enrolment certificate for any non-Rotman Commerce student in the Faculty of Arts & Science. A student who has completed 4.0 credits including MGT100H1 or equivalent may enrol in the Certificate.

1. ( CSC110Y1, CSC111H1), MAT137Y1/​ MAT157Y1

Note: CSC110Y1 and CSC111H1 must be completed in order to complete the Specialist program. No course substitutions will be accepted for CSC110Y1 and/or CSC111H1.

For students who were admitted to the Faculty of Arts & Science (began their studies) in the Fall/Winter 2021-2022 session or earlier:

1. ( CSC108H1, CSC148H1, CSC165H1/​ CSC240H1), MAT137Y1/​ MAT157Y1/​ ( MAT135H1, MAT136H1)

Notes:

  1. Students with a strong background in an object-oriented language such as Python, Java or C++ may omit CSC108H1 and proceed directly with CSC148H1. There is no need to replace the missing 0.5 credit for program completion; however, please base your course choice on what you are ready to take, not on “saving” a 0.5 credit.
  2. CSC240H1 is an accelerated and enriched version of CSC165H1 plus CSC236H1, intended for students with a strong mathematical background, or who develop an interest after taking CSC165H1. If you take CSC240H1 without CSC165H1, there is no need to replace the missing 0.5 credit for program completion; but please see Note (a).
  3. Consult the department's Undergraduate Office for advice about choosing among CSC108H1 and CSC148H1, and between CSC165H1 and CSC240H1.
  4. We recommend that students take MAT137Y1 or MAT157Y1, as they have been determined to provide the best preparation for upper-year courses in computer science and benefit students in CSC165H1/​ CSC240H1. Similarly, we recommend MAT223H1 or MAT240H1 from the options in second year.

Students in this program have the option to enrol in the Arts & Science Internship Program (ASIP) stream. (See Note below)

Second year (3.5 credits):

2. CSC207H1, CSC209H1, CSC236H1/​ CSC240H1, CSC258H1, CSC263H1/​ CSC265H1, MAT223H1/​ MAT240H1; STA247H1/​ STA237H1/​ STA255H1/​ STA257H1

Later years (6.0 credits):

3. CSC369H1, CSC373H1

4. 5.0 credits of courses selected from the following list: 

These 5.0 credits must include:  

  • at least 1.5 credits from 400-level CSC or BCB courses. 
  • no more than 2.0 credits from MAT or STA courses (excluding STA414H1). 

No more than 1.0 credit from CSC490H1, CSC491H1, CSC494H1, CSC495H1, CSC494Y1, BCB330Y1/​ BCB430Y1 may be used to fulfill program requirements. 

The choices in 4 must satisfy the requirement for an integrative, inquiry-based activity by including one of the following courses: CSC301H1, CSC318H1, CSC404H1, CSC417H1, CSC418H1, CSC419H1, CSC420H1, CSC428H1, CSC454H1, CSC485H1, CSC490H1, CSC491H1, CSC494H1, CSC495H1, CSC494Y1. Students who complete the Arts & Science Internship Program (ASIP) stream or PEY Co-op will also meet this requirement.

Note: January 2022 was the last opportunity for Faculty of Arts & Science students to register for PEY Co-op. Students in Year 3 in the Fall/Winter 2021-2022 session were the last group of Faculty of Arts & Science students eligible to participate in PEY Co-op. Students starting Year 2 in Fall 2021 or later are only eligible to participate in the Arts & Science Internship Program stream.

Transfer credits cannot comprise more than 1.0 credit at the 300-/400-level, and cannot be used to satisfy the requirement for an integrative, inquiry-based activity. In addition, transfer credits cannot comprise more than 0.5 credit of the 400-level CSC or BCB courses required.

Choosing courses

This program offers considerable freedom to choose courses at the 300-/400-level, and you are free to make those choices on your own. We are eager to offer guidance, however, and both our Undergraduate Office and individual faculty members are a rich source of advice.

Critical Studies in Equity and Solidarity Major (Arts Program) - ASMAJ1141

Critical Studies in Equity and Solidarity (CSES) is an interdisciplinary program that explores how social relations and practices of power and privilege are (re)produced locally and transnationally. In CSES we question the dominant conceptualization of equity by the state, educational programs, the non-profit sectors and community organizations as individualized and de-historicized social differences. CSES is a hub of critical disability studies teaching and learning. The program provides students with theoretical and practical tools to study social, political, economic and historical injustices. CSES takes a unique approach to undergraduate education that values student experiential learning and community knowledge. The learning goal of CSES is to provide frameworks on theories of transformative social change rooted in political activism and formations of solidarity. The program encourages students to apply theory in action through organizing and practicing solidarity in making a more just world. Equity Studies creates a dynamic learning environment that extends far beyond the university walls. With a vibrant student body, dynamic faculty members, connection with a wide range of community partners and a bold curriculum, CSES at New College is a leader in studies of social justice, settler colonialism, race, gender, sexuality, disability, land/water and sustainability, activism, solidarity and the art of resistance, and global food equity and security.

Critical Studies in Equity and Solidarity Minor (Arts Program) - ASMIN1141

Critical Studies in Equity and Solidarity (CSES) is an interdisciplinary program that explores how social relations and practices of power and privilege are (re)produced locally and transnationally. In CSES we question the dominant conceptualization of equity by the state, educational programs, the non-profit sectors and community organizations as individualized and de-historicized social differences. CSES is a hub of critical disability studies teaching and learning. The program provides students with theoretical and practical tools to study social, political, economic and historical injustices. CSES takes a unique approach to undergraduate education that values student experiential learning and community knowledge. The learning goal of CSES is to provide frameworks on theories of transformative social change rooted in political activism and formations of solidarity. The program encourages students to apply theory in action through organizing and practicing solidarity in making a more just world. Equity Studies creates a dynamic learning environment that extends far beyond the university walls. With a vibrant student body, dynamic faculty members, connection with a wide range of community partners and a bold curriculum, CSES at New College is a leader in studies of social justice, settler colonialism, race, gender, sexuality, disability, land/water and sustainability, activism, solidarity and the art of resistance, and global food equity and security.

Data Science Specialist (Science Program) - ASSPE1687

The field of Data Science is a combination of statistics and computer science methodologies that enable ‘learning from data’. A data scientist extracts information from data, and is involved with every step that must be taken to achieve this goal, from getting acquainted with the data to communicating the results in non-technical language. The Data Science Specialist program prepares students for work in the Data Science industry or government and for graduate studies in Data Science, Computer Science, or Statistics. Students in the program will benefit from a range of advanced courses in Computer Science and Statistics offered by the University of Toronto, as well as from a sequence of three integrative courses designed especially for the program.

The Data Science Specialist program comprises three fundamental and highly-integrated aspects. First, students will acquire expertise in statistical reasoning, methods, and inference essential for any data analyst. Seconds, students will receive in-depth training in computer science: the design and analysis of algorithms and data structures for handling large amounts of data, and best practices in software design. Students will receive training in machine learning, which lies at the intersection of computer and statistical sciences. The third aspect is the application of computer science and statistics to produce analyses of complex, large-scale datasets, and the communication of the results of these analyses; students will receive training in these areas by taking integrative courses that are designed specifically for the Data Science Specialist program. The courses involve experiential learning: students will be working with real large-scale datasets from the domain of business, government, and/or science. The successful student will combine their expertise in computer and statistical science to produce and communicate analyses of complex large-scale datasets.

Skills that graduates of the program will acquire include proficiency in statistical reasoning and computational thinking; data manipulation and exploration, visualization, and communication that are required for work as a data scientist; the ability to apply statistical methods to solve problems in the context of scientific research, business, and government; familiarity and experience with best practices in software development; and knowledge of current software infrastructure for handling large data sets. Graduates of the program will be able to demonstrate the ability to apply machine learning algorithms to large-scale datasets that arise in scientific research, government, and business; create appropriate data visualizations for complex datasets; identify and answer questions that involve applying statistical methods or machine learning algorithms to complex data, and communicating the results; present the results and limitations of a data analysis at an appropriate technical level for the intended audience.

Enrolment Requirements:

This is a limited enrolment program. Students must have completed 4.0 credits and meet the requirements listed below to enrol.

For students admitted to Arts & Science in the Year 1 Computer Science (CMP1) admission category:

Variable Minimum Grade
A minimum grade is needed for entry, and this minimum changes each year depending on the number of applicants. At least 20 spaces will be available each year for students applying from Year 1 Computer Science (CMP1) within 12 months of beginning their studies:

* Students are strongly encouraged to take STA130H1 in their first year. STA261H1 will be used in place of STA130H1 for program admission purposes if a student has not completed STA130H1 or if they have completed both STA130H1 and STA261H1 by the time they are being considered for admission.

To ensure that students admitted to the program will be successful, applicants will not be considered for admission with a grade lower than 70% in CSC110Y1, MAT137Y1, and STA130H1/​ STA261H1, or lower than 77% in CSC111H1. ( MAT157Y1 grades will be adjusted to account for the course's greater difficulty.) Obtaining these minimum grades does not guarantee admission to the program.

For students admitted to other Arts & Science Year 1 admission categories:

Special Requirement

  • Students who do not have the Computer Science Admission Guarantee must complete a supplementary application to be considered for the program.

Variable Minimum Grade
A minimum grade is needed for entry, and this minimum changes each year depending on available spaces and the number of applicants. The following courses must be completed:

* Students are strongly encouraged to take STA130H1 in their first year. STA261H1 will be used in place of STA130H1 for program admission purposes if a student has not completed STA130H1 or if they have completed both STA130H1 and STA261H1 by the time they are being considered for admission.

To ensure that students admitted to the program will be successful, applicants with a grade lower than 70% will not be considered for admission. ( MAT157Y1 grades will be adjusted to account for the course's greater difficulty.) Obtaining these minimum grades does not guarantee admission to the program.

Notes:

  1. Requests for admission will be considered in the first program request period only.
  2. Due to the limited enrolment nature of this program, students are strongly advised to plan to enroll in backup programs.
  3. Students admitted to the program after second or third year will be required to pay retroactive deregulated program fees.
Completion Requirements:

(13.0-13.5 credits, including at least 1.5 credits at the 400-level)

First year (3.0-3.5 credits)
MAT137Y1/​ MAT157Y1, MAT223H1/​ MAT240H1 ( MAT240H1 is recommended), STA130H1, ( CSC108H1, CSC148H1)/ ( CSC110Y1, CSC111H1)
Note: Students with a strong background in an object-oriented language such as Python, Java or C++ may omit CSC108H1 and proceed directly with CSC148H1. There is no need to replace the missing half-credit for program completion; however, please base your course choice on what you are ready to take, not on "saving" a half-credit. Consult with the Computer Science Undergraduate Office for advice on choosing between CSC108H1 and CSC148H1.

Students in this program have the option to enrol in the Arts & Science Internship Program (ASIP) stream.

Second year (3.5-4.0 credits)
MAT237Y1/​ MAT257Y1, STA257H1, STA261H1, CSC207H1, ( CSC165H1, CSC236H1)/ CSC236H1/​ CSC240H1 ( CSC240H1 is recommended), JSC270H1 (Data Science I)
Note: CSC240H1 is an accelerated and enriched version of CSC165H1 plus CSC236H1, intended for students with a strong mathematical background, or who develop an interest after taking CSC165H1. If you take CSC240H1 without CSC165H1, there is no need to replace the missing half-credit for program completion; however, please base your course choice on what you are ready to take, not on "saving" a half-credit. Consult the Computer Science Undergraduate Office for advice on choosing between CSC165H1 and CSC240H1. CSC236H1 may be taken without CSC165H1 for students who completed CSC111H1.

Digital Humanities Minor (Arts Program) - ASMIN1337

Digital humanities (DH) is a discipline at the intersections of the humanities with computing. DH studies human culture -- art, literature, history, geography, religion -- through computational tools and methodologies; and, in turn, DH studies the digital through humanist lenses. Digital humanists study social media phenomena or medieval manuscript archives; computationally analyze thousands of newspaper articles to trace economic developments; construct video games to study literary narratives; or resurrect historical cities through digital maps and virtual reality exhibits.

In introductory and advanced DH courses, students learn about the intellectual landscape of digital humanities scholarship. They learn how to build digital stories, exhibits, and maps; how to digitize rare books; how to analyze collections of data; how to construct digital models and 3D-print them; and how to manage major digital projects. By the end of the program, students conduct a major DH research project of their own or participate in the research of an established faculty project. Throughout the program, students gain a critical perspective on digital technologies, learning to consider the ways digital platforms shape, and are shaped by, the currents of wider social and cultural forces.

By providing this critical and technical skillset, the Digital Humanities Minor prepares students for future paths that range from graduate studies in literature, history, library science, education, or computer science, to careers as technical writers, data analysts and visualizers, project managers, or programmers.

Students should note that some courses at the 200, 300, and 400 levels may have additional prerequisites.

Permission to count courses that are not on the list below towards the Minor in Digital Humanities must be received from the Program Coordinator, and will be granted on a case-by-case basis when the student’s work demonstrably and substantially engages Digital Humanities-related content or research methods.

Enrolment Requirements:

This is an open enrolment program. A student who has completed 4.0 credits may enrol in the program.

Completion Requirements:

(4.0 credits, including 1.0 credit at the 300/400-level)

Students should note that some courses at the 200, 300, and 400-levels may have additional prerequisites.

Permission to count courses towards the Minor in Digital Humanities that are not in the Completion Requirements must be received by the Program Coordinator, and will be granted on a case-by-case basis when the student’s work demonstrably and substantially engages Digital Humanities-related content or research methods.

Earth and Environmental Systems Major (Science Program) - ASMAJ2745

In the Earth and Environmental Systems Major, students use multidisciplinary approaches to studying the large-scale interactions between the Earth and planetary systems over a broad spectrum of time-scales, addressing deep timescales of millions to billions of years as well as processes taking place in today’s and in future worlds. Courses take an integrative approach to understanding interactions between the solid Earth, the biosphere, the atmosphere and the hydrosphere, addressing how these interactions have developed over geological, historical, and recent time periods. Themes of the program include biogeochemistry, paleoclimatology (e.g., drivers of Earth’s natural climate variability), global environmental change, Quaternary science (e.g., understanding the ice ages) and Earth surface processes (e.g., evolution of landforms and sedimentary basins). This program provides broad context over time and space to better understand and provide solutions for the current issues of climate change, resource consumption and global pollution weighing heavily on people and societies. Students are advised to check course prerequisites, to review the clusters of courses listed, and to consult the Earth Sciences Undergraduate Handbook for logical course progressions. For further questions, please contact the Student Affairs Coordinator (Scott Moore, Department of Earth Sciences, 22 Russell St. Earth Sciences Center, Room 1062 email: ugrad@es.utoronto.ca).

This program is jointly sponsored by the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology and the School of the Environment. For additional information see “School of the Environment” (www.environment.utoronto.ca) or consult our website: www.pharmtox.utoronto.ca.

The Environment and Toxicology Specialist program is an interdisciplinary program which spans the social, physical and life sciences and integrates study of the effects of chemicals not only on the health and behaviour of human beings but on whole ecosystems as the adverse effects associated with therapeutic and environmental chemicals are discussed. This program emphasizes the application of knowledge of environmental toxicology and risk assessment and prepares students for a variety of job opportunities following its completion. Graduates of the Environment and Toxicology program may pursue careers in scientific research, environmental science, conservation science, governmental agencies, consulting agencies, and within chemical, manufacturing or agriculture industries. Students learn to integrate basic environmental and life science with particular aspects of clinical toxicology and related areas through lectures, tutorials, and laboratory and independent research project experience. The senior independent research project course enables students to gain valuable research experience while working under the supervision of an individual faculty member in either a laboratory-based or a non-laboratory-based setting.

Finance and Economics Specialist (BCom) - ASSPE2038

Rotman Commerce at the University of Toronto offers an innovative curriculum combining studies in management, economics, and the liberal arts for an enriched professional undergraduate experience. The program explores the role of commerce in modern society while developing skill and confidence in analysis, effective communication, and decision making. The Rotman Commerce program offers a Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) degree in three different specialist programs, Finance & Economics, Accounting, and Management.

All programs within the Bachelor of Commerce degree build on a common foundation of business and liberal arts courses. Rotman Commerce students specialize in one of three programs: Accounting, Finance and Economics, or Management. Each program combines courses in management and applied economics with a variety of advanced courses in the liberal arts and sciences. The balance assures graduates of a solid understanding of business and modern society along with a command of critical skills in decision-making and organizational leadership.

Rotman Commerce graduates frequently become economists, accountants, actuaries, financial analysts, marketing analysts, managers of firms and government, or proprietors of small businesses. Some Rotman Commerce students elect to undertake post-graduate studies in the form of further university education: law schools and MBA programs have been particularly favoured destinations of recent graduates.


Enrolment Requirements:

This is a limited enrolment program. Students must have completed 4.0 credits and meet the requirements listed below to enrol.

For students admitted to the Rotman Commerce admission category in Year 1:

Special Requirement

  • Students are admitted to Year 1 of the Faculty of Arts and Science in the Rotman Commerce admission category with an “admission guarantee.” Students admitted with the guarantee are invited to enroll in the program after first year, provided that the course and grade requirements below (i.e., Guaranteed Admission requirements) are met.
  • Failure to meet any of these requirements, or failure to complete all the required courses within the calendar year (assuming full-time studies), will result in losing the admission guarantee.

Completed courses (with minimum grades)
The following courses with the stated minimum grades are required:

Notes:

  • Students may repeat any of the required courses once, in order to attain the requisite mark. The repeated course(s) must be completed within the calendar year (as per the terms of the "guarantee"); as such, the repeated course(s) must be taken during either the Winter or Summer Session of first-year (i.e. a student may not extend the terms of their guarantee in order to attain the minimum marks).
  • Note that none of the required courses may be completed using the CR/NCR option.


For students NOT admitted to the Year 1 Rotman Commerce admission category:

Special Requirement

  • Students must complete the Rotman Commerce Supplemental Application in late April or May of each year.
  • All course admission requirements must be completed by May 1 to be eligible.

Admission will be based on marks and the Rotman Commerce Supplemental Application. Admission to Rotman Commerce is competitive. Meeting the minimum academic requirements does not guarantee admission to the program. An average of at least 73% in the prerequisite courses is needed for admission consideration and preference will be given to students whose marks are the result of a single attempt in each course.

*The combination of ( STA220H1, STA255H1) is considered equivalent to ECO220Y1 for the purposes of completing Rotman Commerce program requirements only. It is not considered equivalent by the department of Economics.

Focus in Computer Vision (Major) - ASFOC1689L

(3.5 credits)

The Focus in Computer Vision (Major) has the same set of requirements as the Focus in Computer Vision (Specialist).

Computer vision is the science and technology of machines that can see. As a science, the goal of computer vision is to understand the computational processes required for a machine to come to an understanding of the content of a set of images. The data here may be a single snapshot, a video sequence, or a set of images from different viewpoints or provided by medical scanners.

The computer vision focus introduces students to the study of vision from a computational point of view. That is, we attempt to clearly define computational problems for various steps of the overall process, and then show how these problems can be tackled with appropriate algorithms.

Students who wish to pursue computer vision should have an understanding of linear algebra and calculus of several variables. Moreover, they should be solid programmers and have a good understanding of data structures and algorithm design. These basic tools are required in order to first pose computational vision problems, and then develop and test algorithms for the solution to those problems.
