Enroll on ROSI There are limits on the number of 100-level courses that can be used for credit towards your degree Subject POSts (Programs Of Study) are the focus of your degree and you should select a combination of firstyear courses that will giveRequirements you the Breadth are option to enter “exit” requirements – they several don’t have different to be completed in Subject the but are your first POSts year ofatstudy end of your firstcompletion year required for the of ofyour study degree.

The Physical and Mathematical Universes (PMU) Note the specific requirement for Commerce Students Credits must be either: a) 1.0 credit in each of 4 of the 5 categories; or b) 1.0 credit in each of 3 of the 5 categories and 0.5 in each of the other 2 categories **Commerce students must complete at least 1.0 FCE from Category 1 **Other restrictions/rules also exist (see Calendar – ‘Degree Requirements’) Start with the listing of Subject POSt options on the New Students website under ‘Course Selection’ Most Subject POSts will have one or more required first-year courses and you should select your combination of 5.0 first-year credits carefully to ensure that you will have access to a variety of Subject POSt options at the end of your first year of study. More detailed Subject POSt information, including firstyear required courses, can be found in the Arts and Science Calendar. Economics Major (Arts program) This is a limited enrolment program. Space permitting, students who request the program and obtain at least the specified mark(s) in the required course(s) will be eligible to enroll. Achieving these marks does not necessarily guarantee admission to the program in a given year. Symbols in the Calendar: Required courses and grades for program enrolment: (ECO100Y1 with a final mark of at least 67%, or ECO105Y1 with a final mark of at least 80%), AND / means ‘OR’ MAT133Y1 with a final mark of at least 63%, or ; , MAT136H1 + ( ) & all (MAT135H1 with a final mark of at least 60% and withmean a final ‘AND’ mark of at least 60%), or MAT137Y1 with a final mark of at least 55%, or MAT157Y1 with a final mark of at least 55%.

Courses that can help fulfill the Breadth Requirement: • The required courses for your programs of interest will fulfill some of your breadth requirement. • You don’t have to complete the Breadth requirement in 1st year, but it can be a good opportunity to take an elective course in a category you need 199 Seminars Big Ideas courses 2.

Courses that can help fulfill the Breadth Requirement: 4. Introductory courses that will give you additional Subject POSt options: • The required courses for your programs of interest will fulfill some of your breadth requirement. • • You don’t have to complete the Breadth requirement in 1st year, but it can be a good opportunity to take an elective course in a category you need It is important to have several options for Subject POSts at the end of 1st year in case your first choice is not what you expected or you do not achieve the grade needed to enter the program • Taking an additional introductory course allows you to explore other interests you may have 2. Small class experiences – 199 courses, FLCs, Foundational Year Programs, eg. UC One 5. Explore something that wasn’t available in high school or that may help towards future goals: • These are unique opportunities only available in your 1st year, including a chance to get to know your professor - each class usually has no more than 25 students • The advantage of being at a university as large as U. of T. is the huge selection of courses • Professional programs (medicine, law, social work etc.) generally focus on marks and not program choices, but may suggest some courses to take during your undergraduate years • 199 courses are designed to help fulfill the breadth requirement and you should ideally choose one in a category that is different from your main programs of interest 3. Skills development courses – e.g. writing courses and languages: • • Courses such as Effective Writing (ENG100H1) or Writing Essays (INI103H1) can help build skills that will be valuable for other courses you take U. of T. offers over 40 different languages to learn 6. Anti-Calendar - available online at www.assu.ca: • Consider what other students have thought of courses • The Anti-Calendar is published by the student union and provides student evaluations of courses and professors to help students make informed choices PHY131H1 Introduction to Physics I A first university physics course primarily for students not intending to pursue a Specialist or Major program in Physical or Mathematical Sciences.
