Curriculum


  1. Two six-course concentrations in two distinct disciplines, plus a four-course block in a third distinct discipline.
    • The four-course block must contain at least two courses at the 2000-level or higher. 
    • Each six-course concentration contains at least two courses at the 2000-level or higher, and two courses at the 3000-level or higher. The concentrations are defined for each discipline (below). 
    • A student will not be given credit for more than one concentration within a fundamental discipline (ie. Biology, Chemistry, Computing, Geography, Geology, Mathematics, Physics). 
  2. Four Mathematics courses which may be taken as the four-course block or as part of a six-course concentration:
  3. Two Computing courses:
  4. An additional six General Science Options, which may be chosen from either the General Science Concentrations or the list of Supplementary General Science Courses. 
    • Within the six General Science Options, two courses must be at the 2000-level or higher, and two courses must be at the 3000-level or higher.
    • Any one General Science course cannot be used to satisfy more than one requirement within the major.
  5. Two General Science Capstone Courses: 
  6. General Education requirements in a program will normally consist of a minimum of 10 courses.​
    • Four courses will be taken at the foundation level: one from each of the General Education Program’s four thematic cluster areas.
    • Three courses will be taken at the second tier: no more than one from a given thematic cluster. BSc students will make their Tier 2 selections from clusters other than Numeracy and Scientific Literacy.
    • Three courses must be taken at the third tier, selected from at least two of the four thematic clusters.
  7. Four elective courses

Note


* COMP 1501  may be substituted for COMP 2001  in order to take senior COMP courses, but the student will need to ensure that their 1000-level course limit is not exceeded.

* Enrollment spaces in senior level Geology courses will be limited.
