Program Requirements

International Experience Requirement

Prior to graduation, students in the Honours program must satisfy a requirement for international experience in ONE of the following ways:

  1. International exchange: successful completion of at least 0.5 credit in approved courses through an international exchange agreement managed by the International Student Services Office, or
  2. Letter of Permission: successful completion of at least 0.5 credit in approved courses by Letter of Permission, from an international or Canadian university offering a course taught outside Canada, or
  3. International placement: successful completion of GINS 3900 [0.5] International Placement, or GPOL 3100 [2.5] Internship in Global Politics, or an approved international placement offered through another unit, or
  4. Carleton course taught abroad: successful completion of at least 0.5 credit in a Carleton course taught abroad, chosen from:

  6. Experiential Learning Abroad: successful completion of GINS 3200 [0.5] Experiential Learning Abroad.

Language Requirement

Students in both the BGInS Honours and BGInS General programs must satisfy the language requirement. The language requirement may be satisfied in one of two ways:

1.  By course work

Students who lack second language skill upon entry, or who wish to learn a new language, can satisfy the language requirement by satisfactorily completing language instruction courses in a modern language other than English up to an intermediate level. In most cases, this means completing the equivalent of two years (2.0 credits) of university-level language study. Listed below are the specific Carleton language instruction courses which satisfy the BGInS language requirement. Courses taken at other institutions may also be used to meet the language requirement, as long as they are accepted by the Department of French or the School of Linguistics and Language Studies as being equivalent to, or at a higher level than, the courses specified below.

2.  By demonstrating prior language proficiency

Students who already have intermediate or higher second language skills upon entry may be exempted from taking language courses.  Students who wish to be exempted from taking language courses must apply for an exemption to the Program Director using the form available on the BGInS website.  Each application will be treated on its merits, but the following general guidelines apply:

  • Secondary school language of instruction: Students whose secondary school transcripts show that their primary language of instruction in secondary school was a language other than English may be exempted from taking language courses.
  • French immersion: Students who have successfully completed Grade 12 French immersion or the equivalent at a Canadian high school may be exempted from taking language courses. 
  • Proficient speakers: Students who do not qualify under either of the first two categories, but who nonetheless consider themselves proficient speakers of a language other than English, may be exempted from having to take language courses.  For languages taught at Carleton, “proficiency” means a level at least equivalent to completion of one of the designated language courses listed above.  For languages not taught at Carleton, “proficiency” means a level at least equivalent to two full years of university level language study.  Proficiency may be demonstrated either through documentation (e.g. certification from a recognized language testing authority) or through testing.  For languages not taught at Carleton, availability of a test depends upon faculty resource availability.

Note: For students enrolled in one of the geographically-defined regional Specializations or Streams, only certain languages relevant to that region of the world may be used to satisfy the language requirement.  See the program requirements in each of the regional Specializations and Streams for further details.

Admissions Information

Admission Requirements are for the 2017-2018 year only, and are based on the Ontario High School System. Holding the minimum admission requirements only establishes eligibility for consideration. The cut-off averages for admission may be considerably higher than the minimum. See also the General Admission and Procedures section of this Calendar. An overall average of at least 70% is normally required to be considered for admission. Some programs may also require specific course prerequisites and prerequisite averages and/or supplementary admission portfolios. Higher averages are required for admission to programs for which the demand for places by qualified applicants exceeds the number of places available. The overall average required for admission is determined each year on a program by program basis. Consult admissions.carleton.ca for further details.
