The Interim Curriculum Committee was charged by President Ross in September 1960 with designing a curriculum for York University, which at that time was teaching the curriculum of the University of Toronto in accordance with the terms of affiliation between the two institutions. The Committee reported to the President and Faculty Council in April 1961 recommending that the College (as York was then styled) be organized into four distinct Divisions (Humanities, Social Sciences, Physical Sciences and Biological Sciences). Traditional departments would fit into one or more of these Divisions. The curriculum proposed by the Committee suggested a generalized and a specialized degree programmes, with the first two years in both being substantially the same. The third year of the general programme was to be devoted to the study of a non-Western culture, while the final two years of the specialized programme was to be devoted to a concentration in a specific discipline.
