Asked by: Phil
Question: If you have been accepted into SMU Bachelor of Arts program and you want to do Criminology with a diploma in Forensic Science, what first year courses should I do? Thanks!!

Answered by: Emma
Answer: Congrats on your acceptance! I have advice on the Criminology major side of things, but I am not too familiar with the Forensic Science diploma. The best place to start when deciding on courses is the Academic Calendar. The Calendar lists course requirements associated with your faculty (i.e. Arts) and your major/diploma (i.e. Crim/Forensic Science). It is best to get some of the basic arts requirements (like Intro to Literature) out of the way. You should also take the Intro to Sociology (SOCI 1210) in your first semester and Social Power Relations (SOCI 1211) in your second semester because you must take these courses before taking Intro to Criminology (CRIM 2303) or any other Criminology courses. You can find the Academic Calendar here: http://www.smu.ca/academics/academic-calendar.html. We have tons of interesting courses to offer in Criminology, you should be very excited! There is a bit of information about the Forensic science diploma here: http://www.smu.ca/academics/cert-diplomas-in-forensic-sciences.html. Since I don't have any advice for you about courses associated with this diploma, you should also contact your academic advisor to ensure that you set yourself up well to complete your degree in the amount of time you plan. They are the experts and are there to help make sure that you take the courses in a way that works well!
