The fine print
Students are responsible for the completeness and accuracy of their registrations and for the completion of all program requirements as specified in the UVic Academic Calendar. Although every attempt has been made to ensure that the information on this worksheet is accurate, in the case of any discrepancy the Academic Calendar must be considered the definitive authority.

Program planning worksheets provide a visual overview of the course requirements for programs within the Faculty of Humanities. The worksheets are organized with a four-year period in mind, but given your academic plans it may take longer to complete your program. You're always encouraged to meet with an adviser to review the worksheet and go over your course plans.
