Clarification Regarding BA Programs
A recent article in Intercamp (“Core courses change for BA degrees”, Nov. 17/05) attempted to outline the Core
Requirements for MacEwan’s new BA degree and compare them to the current Core Requirements for a BA at the U of
A. We commend Intercamp for tackling such a complex topic; however, several points discussed in the article require
clarification. The goal of this article is to clarify the impact of MacEwan’s new Core on those students electing to stay at
MacEwan to complete their BA degree. In addition, students intending to transfer to the U of A for Fall 2006 should be
aware that the core requirements for a BA degree at the U of A are changing (see ** below for more info).
The chart below outlines the BA Core Requirements currently in place at the U of A for 2005/2006 and the Core
Requirements that will be required for MacEwan’s new BA beginning September 2006.
