What is a Plan? All degree programs contain one or more Plans, which consist of a set of courses focussing on a particular subject.
As the subject one studies in university determines future career options and is usually the first step in life as an independent adult, it is important to choose a Plan carefully. Information on the various subjects available to study at Queen’s may be found at this link.
Students who are unfamiliar with the academic structure in the Faculty of Arts and Science should consult the Degree Programs in Arts and Science page before reviewing the information on these pages. Access to Programs and Plans in the Faculty of Arts and Science is governed by Academic Regulation 2 of the Academic Calendar.
