Note

These revised Specialist and Major programmes came into effect in 2014 Students must meet the requirements of the program that was in effect at the time they declared their program of study. This means that students who declared their program of study before 2014 must meet the requirements of the program in effect when they declared, not the new one. The archived calendars can be found here.
