Academic Calendar 2024-2025

The purpose of this Calendar is to provide details for programs offered by the Faculty of Arts and Science of Queen’s University. It contains information concerning admission requirements, academic regulations, programs and courses of study, study abroad, and other matters of general interest to students who are registered in, or who are contemplating, a program in Arts or Science at Queen’s. New this year, and in a first for Canadian universities, the Academic Calendar contains Course Learning Outcomes. Course Learning Outcomes convey to students what they will know or be able to do by the end of a course and will enable students to make more informed decisions about course selection in advance of the registration period.

It is strongly suggested that students read the University’s Code of Conduct on the internet at, and familiarize themselves with the statement of Student Responsibility and the Faculty’s Regulations.

Students who are contemplating an Arts or Science program at Queen’s might wish to consult the 2024-2025 Viewbook, a booklet published by the University that deals with admission requirements for all Faculties and Schools, the University’s facilities and services (including residences), and entrance scholarships and financial assistance. Other information of interest to prospective students is available on departmental websites that can be accessed from the Faculty of Arts and Science website.
