St. Andrew's College course offerings for the 2020-21 academic year. Also available in PDF format. See specific course subject area pages for descriptions of courses, or contact the Registrar at standrews.registrar@usask.ca for more information. Not all courses offered by LTS or ESC are included in this list, please contact the Registrar for the most current offerings.

We are continuing to offer courses and community gatherings for the upcoming academic year. All courses and community gatherings will be held online, until restrictions are lifted and we can safely be together in person. We will have booked times to gather, hosted online through various platforms. Once we receive direction from public health authorities that we can safely be together, we will begin to do that.

If you sign up for an online course in Fall 2020, you will be able to finish that course in the online format.

Courses that start in an online format will be completed in that format in the Fall 2020 term.
