Looking for a course to fulfill your Category “C” requirement?

Many of the following are courses that non-Science students take to fulfill their Category C requirement. Check your program to see whether you need a specific course (for example, most Psychology modules require Math and Stats). You must also check the prerequisites and antirequisites in the Calendar to be sure you are eligible for the course. See www.westerncalendar.uwo.ca

Most of these courses do not prepare you for senior level courses in the same subject. You can tell by reviewing the course description and the prerequisites of senior courses.
