NEW ACADEMIC CHOICES
The University of Western Ontario is committed to ensuring that the Undergraduate experience at Western is a rich and challenging one. We want to ensure that all our students have an opportunity to expand intellectually through exposure to a variety of academic disciplines. New Academic Choices is a new modular degree structure that will give you the opportunity to combine various subjects with even greater flexibility than ever before! In many cases, you will be able to broaden your area(s) of study by combining modules from different Faculties and/or Departments, or you can focus on a specific subject in greater depth.
New Academic Choices is a new modular degree structure being implemented by The University of Western Ontario in September 2004 to give Western undergraduate students increased flexibility in their academic pursuits. The modular structure of the New Academic Choices will provide the opportunity for students to broaden their area(s) of study by combining modules from different Faculties and/or Departments or enhance their studies by focusing intensively on a specific discipline.
The New Academic Choices will be implemented in September 2004.
