MajorEach baccalaureate degree has a major (core program requirements). The number of courses required for each major varies.
General EducationA great education doesn’t just make you an expert in one area - it gives you a well-rounded knowledge base in a variety of areas. That is why all of Mount Royal’s baccalaureate degree and diploma programs will include General Education. You will choose your General Education (GNED) courses from four clusters: numeracy and scientific literacy; values, beliefs and identity; community and society; and communication.
ElectivesYou may also be required to take a certain number of electives for your degree. There are hundreds of courses to choose from depending on your program and interests.


Each year your degree builds upon your previous coursework. In your first two years you will begin with 1000 and 2000 level courses, working up to 3000 and 4000 level courses in your third and fourth years. A typical degree can be completed in four years by taking five courses each fall and winter semester.

Depending on the degree you choose, your program may include hands-on learning such as co-operative education, practica or internships.
