UAlberta Arts Prerequisites - Correction

January 19, 2007

Yesterday’s Top Ten drew upon a story in the Gateway, a campus paper produced by the University of Alberta student journalism society. The UofA has brought to our attention that the Gateway article was in error. "In fact, many other arts faculties in major post-secondary institutions across Canada -- including the Universities of Toronto and Queen’s -- also do not include math and science courses in their admission requirements... This change to our admission requirements was implemented only after extensive research about other universities, and for the purpose of aligning ourselves with other respected universities across the country." A response from the UofA Dean of Arts was printed in this week’s Gateway.
