Extended Degree students must take and pass 22 courses in total, of which at least 2 must be EDU Introductory (DOH) or Numeracy (MAM) Courses, 12 must be Humanities courses, and at least 10 must be senior courses (2000- and 3000-level courses).
Wherever a semester course has a Plus Tutorial attached to it, ED students must be sure to register for BOTH the regular version AND the Plus tutorial – the Course Titles are the same, but the Plus Tutorial has a (+) at the end of the Course Title. The list of first and second year courses with Plus Tutorials in 2021 can be found on page 17 of this ED Guide.
