The General Arts and Science Trent Transfer stream is specifically designed for individuals interested in pursuing studies in Trent University’s Bachelor of Arts (Honours) or Bachelor of Science (Honours).
This two-semester program provides the opportunity to develop and refine key academic skills and, ultimately, provides the foundational knowledge needed to ensure success in subsequent academic studies. It is designed for individuals who would like to strengthen their science, communication, and/or mathematics skills as well as familiarize themselves with college life and college workload.
Overall, students will be required to complete six courses per semester (12 courses in total). These include courses in Preparing for Academic Success (one), Communications (two), Computers (one), Literature (one), Psychology (two), Philosophy (two), Sociology (two) and Statistics (one).
Upon successful completion of the General Arts and Science Trent Transfer stream, students with a minimum 70% average overall and a minimum of 65% in each of the required courses will be eligible to apply to a Bachelor of Arts program at Trent University on an advanced standing basis into Year 2.
