What is special about UTSG specialist programme?
For other US and UK universities there are no such specialist programme. They only have major and minor. What's the difference between the specialist programme in UTSG and the major in other US and UK universities?

At UofT, there are three types of programs: Specialist, Major, Minor. Specialist is essentially a major that takes more credits to earn. Instead of taking around 8 credits of program-related courses to earn it, you need to take between 10 and 14. UofT created the specialist program so that people could study one field and graduate with a degree in it without having to take a second major or two minors as well. In essence, it is concentrated and specialized major program.
