After Degree Program (ADP) Required Courses
• ADP students must complete 60 credit hours in total to earn their second degree in FSS.
• All FSS University One prerequisites are waived. b
• In order to facilitate ADP students completing the program in a timely manner, they will automatically be permitted (without special permission from the course instructor) to take FSS 2000 level prerequisites as co-requisites for any required FSS 3000 and/or 4000 level courses.

a The same entrance requirements will be applied to ADP students in order to maintain current Bachelor of Human Ecology Family Social Sciences degree program standards.
b Basic social science knowledge is assumed because ADP students have previously completed an undergraduate degree; waiving U1 requirements for FSS courses acknowledges the skills, background & maturity of this particular group of students.
c Students who have previously completed an undergraduate statistics course can either transfer it in directly (if already assessed as equivalent) or can request to have it assessed for advance standing; if successful, students will be required to add 3 credits to their program from courses selected within Family Social Sciences.
ADP in FSS is 60 credit hours. If students have taken any of the required courses for this degree, they can be transferred in. Students will, however, need to take additional courses in order to fulfill the University of Manitoba’s Residency Requirement. This requirement states all students must complete at least 60 credit hours in the Bachelor of Human Ecology Family Social Sciences degree program at the University of Manitoba. You may want to discuss additional courses with the Academic Advisor.
d This choice provides students who have previously taken a research methods course with the option of avoiding redundancy in their program. Students are free to take all 3 courses if they feel it would benefit them.
e f,g,h Please refer to the Undergraduate Calendar for descriptions of current regular program requirements across all five FSS options. Elective choices for 2 or more options can only be taken to satisfy the requirements from one section, ie. It cannot be used to satisfy both lists.
i Students will be asked to take a minimum of any 2 of the introductory levels courses across options in an effort to assist them with selecting an option as well as to encourage them to specialize in more than one option. These courses may be used to fulfill one or more options in Family Social Sciences.
j Each FSS option is a total of 18 credit hours; since ADP students will have already taken at least one 2000 level course (3 credit hours) required by their chosen Option as part of their program requirements, the remainder of their Option requirements totals15 credit hours.
