First-year courses and beyond
September to December
January to April
Knowledge Integration is designed to be flexible. You're encouraged to use four of your first-year electives to begin completing some of your breadth requirements, particularly the computer science, math, language, and natural/physical science requirements.
After first year
About a quarter of the classes you’ll take will be Knowledge Integration courses. With your remaining classes, you can choose electives from many of the 100 subjects at Waterloo.
