Major (Joint) Program in New Media Studies
*The following minor curricular modifications, implemented for the 2017-18 academic year, have been reversed:
1.    Adding ACMB01H3 as a required course to component 1 of the program requirements; total credits of the component increased from 1.0 to 1.5;
2.    Decreasing the total credits of component 2 of the program requirements from 1.5 to 1.0 to be chosen from MDSB61H3, MDSB62H3, MDSB63H3; and
3.    Removing components 3 and 4 of the program requirements, which reduced the total credits to complete program by 1.0 credit – from 9.0 credits to 8.0 credits.

The program course requirements revert fully to the requirements that were in place in the 2016-17 academic Calendar, except where courses codes and titles have been updated to reflect course changes approved for 2016-17. These changes are effective for the 2017-18 academic year.

On Tuesday February 28, 2017, UTSC Academic Affairs Committee approved minor program modifications to the Major (Joint) Program in New Media Studies (BA). The Department of Arts, Culture and Media (ACM) and the Office of the Dean have discovered that by implementing these changes:
1.    The program cannot be completed. The revised program requirements included that “Students must complete 8.0 credits of which at least 2.0 credits must be at the C- or D-level.” However, the program’s course components were comprised of 7.0 credits at the A- and B-level, and 1.0 credit at the D-level. A further 1.0 credit at the C- or D-level was missing from the program requirements making it impossible for students to complete.
2.    The program no longer meets the UTSC Degree Criteria (2010), which mandates that a Major offering include a minimum of 2.0 credits at the C- or D-level.

To ensure that students wanting to select the program as a Subject POSt in 2017-18 are able to complete its requirements, and to ensure the program meets the UTSC Degree Criteria, the changes approved on February 28, 2017 have been reversed and the program course requirements reverted fully to the requirements that were in place in the 2016-17 Calendar.

Submission deadlines follow the Limited Enrolment Program Application Deadlines set by the Registrars Office each year. Failure to submit both the Supplementary Application Form and the program request on ACORN will result in that students application not being considered.

Current Co-op Students:

Students admitted to a Co-op Degree POSt in their first year of study must request a Co-op Subject POSt on ACORN upon completion of 4.0 credits and must have passed all of the A-level CSC and MAT courses required in the program. Students with a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or greater across the core A-level courses (CSCA08H3, CSCA48H3, MATA24H3, MATA30H3/MATA31H3 and MATA36H3/MATA37H3), as well as a cumulative GPA of at least 2.5 across all attempted courses, are guaranteed admission.

Prospective Co-op Students:

Prospective students (i.e., those not already admitted to a Co-op Degree POSt) may apply to the Co-op Program after completing 4.0 credits, and must have passed all of the core A-level courses required in the program. Only students with a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or greater across the core A-level courses (CSCA08H3, CSCA48H3, MATA24H3, MATA30H3/MATA31H3 and MATA36H3/MATA37H3), as well as a cumulative GPA of at least 2.75 across all attempted courses, will be considered for admission to the Co-op Program.

In addition to requesting the Co-op Program on ACORN, prospective students must also submit a Co-op Supplementary Application Form, which is available from the Arts & Science Co-op Office (http://www.utsc.utoronto.ca/askcoop/future-co-op-students). Submission deadlines follow the Limited Enrolment Program Application Deadlines set by the Registrar’s Office each year. Failure to submit both the Supplementary Application Form and the program request on ACORN will result in that student’s application not being considered.

Specialist Program in Computer Science
Specialist (Co-operative) Program in Computer Science

*MATA23H3 has been removed from the list of required courses under component 2 of the Program Requirements

The Department of Computer and Mathematical Sciences submitted a proposal to replace MATA23H3 with MATA22H3 in the 2017-18 Curriculum Cycle. The proposal, which was approved at the February 28th meeting of AAC, clearly added MATA22H3, but did not show the removal of MATA23H3. This change corrects the error in the proposal.
