Here's what to take in your first year at Camosun if you're planning to transfer to UVic.
Update: This outline has been compiled from the Faculty sections of UVic’s online 2017-2018 Undergraduate Academic Calendar (May 2017)
You can take courses that meet admission requirements for this program. Camosun does not offer all of the required core courses you need for this major, so you'll need to start planning your admission to UVic early in your studies.

Year 2 and beyond
After the first year, your transfer options become much more individual. You cannot complete all of the Year 2 course work at Camosun College because we do not offer all of them.
You will need to start discussions with UVic about planning your admission and transfer to their program, and how you will transition there.
