Building COMS into your degree
Students currently need to pass COMS101 to continue to 200-level COMS courses. We may waive that entry requirement for students who have passed COMS102 or who have a B average in 72 points of relevant courses.
To progress to 300-level courses, students need to have passed two 200-level COMS courses. We may waive that requirement for students who have good marks elsewhere and only want to take one 300-level COMS course.
To major in COMS, students need to take at least 6 courses in COMS, EITHER COMS101 + COMS102 + two 200-level courses + two 300-level courses OR COMS101 + three 200-level courses + two 300-level courses
To enter the Honours year, students need a B+ average in at least two 300-level COMS courses, as well as completing the 360 points needed for the BA degree.
All our courses are regularly rated by students well above the Arts average. Students value in particular the contemporary issues discussed, multimedia examples used in lectures, approachability of lecturers and the relevance of what they learn.
