Pre-approved Complementary Study Electives

MSE students must complete 9 units (or 3 courses) of breadth courses with at least one course in each B-Soc and B-Hum category.  At least one course (3 units) chosen from the Central Issues, Methodology & Thought Processes, a selection of pre-approved complementary studies electives. These classes cover ideas and techniques in the mainstream of the humanities.

MSE second degree students are considered to have met the comlementary electives requirement of the program.   As per University policy,  students admitted to second degrees are exempt from all of the Breadth requirements, the lower-division W course, and one Q course. The remaining W and Q courses must be a minimum of 3 credits each; the W course must be upper-division and within the major, while the Q course may be upper- or lower-division. Second degree students must meet the FAL and FAN prerequisites in order to enrol in W and Q courses. Second degree students who have met WQB requirements in a first degree at Simon Fraser Unviersity are still required to meet this UD W and Q requirement for the second degree.
