How you'll enrol

IMPORTANT NOTE: ARTS 130 and ARTS 140 cannot be requested during the Course Selection Period. These courses are added during the Drop/Add Period (beginning November 30). 

New Arts students must successfully complete BOTH Arts First courses ARTS 130 and ARTS 140 to meet the Undergraduate Communication Requirement.

  • Both courses should be completed in your first year, one in the Fall term and one in the Winter term.
    • If you completed an ARTS 130 topic in Fall, you should enrol in ARTS 140 in Winter, and vice versa.
  • You can take them in any order, but only one Arts First course can be taken at a time.
  • You cannot repeat an Arts First course if you have previously successfully completed it.
  • Each section of ARTS 130 and ARTS 140 has a different topic, but the overall learning outcomes and goals are the same for all topics in each course. 

To prepare to add ARTS 130 or ARTS 140 to your Winter course schedule, follow the steps below BEFORE November 30.

Note: Students co-registered at St. Jerome's (STJ), please select an ONLNJ designated section (ARTS 130 ONLNJ - SEM 046, 047, or ARTS 140 ONLNJ - SEM 042, 043).
