About Electives

General Electives

Students in certificate or diploma programs are required to include general electives as part of their program of study.

At Sheridan, there are two general types of General Education Courses:

  1. Open General Education Courses: General Education courses which are chosen by students outside of their field of study to meet their General Education requirements.

  2. Mandated General Education Courses: General Education courses which are identified and determined to be required by the Academic Faculty for students registered in a specific program(s).

Sheridan requires the following minimum number of General Education courses for each credential level in order to ensure compliance with the MTCU Binding Policy Directive: Framework for Programs of Instruction.

  • Ontario College Certificate Programs: minium of one
  • Ontario College Diploma Programs: minimum of one; maximum of one mandated
  • Ontario Advanced Diploma Programs: minimum of four; maximum of two mandated

General Education Course Offerings & More Information

Please see the General Education page for complete details about General Education and to see current course offerings.

Breadth Electives

Students in degree programs are required to include Liberal Arts and Science breadth electives as part of their program of study. Such students must also include breadth electives from particular fields of study and levels in fulfillment of their program’s degree breadth requirements.

Types of Breadth Elective Courses & Offerings

Students have to complete at least eight breadth elective courses (at least 20% of the total program hours) drawn from five fields of study:

  • Humanities
  • Social Science
  • Global Culture
  • Mathematics
  • Science

Students must complete:

  • An Introductory 1000 level course in a minimum of two of the five fields of study as noted above.*
  • At least two courses at a level higher than Introductory 1000
  • In addition to the above, every degree program will include Composition and Rhetoric from the English/Literature discipline of Humanities; for some programs, Composition and Rhetoric may be considered part of the core curriculum and would not qualify as meeting breadth requirements
  • Breadth courses(s) to meet the requirement for the specific degree and be consistent with PEQAB Program Content Standard requirements

* if a course is related to the degree program of study, students will not be able to select that course

Once the Level and Fields of Study criteria have been satisfied, students can select their remaining outstanding breadth electives from any Level and any Field of Study (provided they satisfy the necessary pre-requisite.)

Breadth Elective Course Offerings & More Information

See Sheridan's Degree Breadth Electives page for further information and a breakdown of breadth electives.
