Integrated Pathway in French and Francophone Intercultural Studies and Law -- Bachelor of Arts (BA) and Juris Doctor (JD)
In partnership with the Programme de Common law en français (PCLF) at the University of Ottawa, La Cité offers an Integrated Pathway allowing students to earn a BA in FFIS and a JD in six years of study. In the first three years, students complete 90 credit hours in FFIS at the University of Regina, including all of the Major requirements and the Arts Core requirements. In the final three years, students complete 95 credits in the PCLF at the University of Ottawa. After having successfully completed the first year of Law at the University of Ottawa, students in the Integrated Pathway are eligible to graduate with a BA in FFIS. Upon successfully completing three years of study in the PCLF, students in the Integrated Pathway receive the JD from the University of Ottawa.
