Admission to General Science is limited. Students interested in a broad Science program should consider other specializations, including Combined Major in Science.
General Science recognizes five designated subject areas of the Faculty of Science:
For first-year requirements for entry into the General Science program, see Lower-Level Requirements under Bachelor of Science, Degree Requirements. Students must register in the courses that are prerequisite to the courses of their proposed areas of concentration.
While there are no specified second-year courses, sufficient first- and second-year science courses must be completed to meet the requirements for promotion to third year (see Promotion Requirements).
All degree requirements must be fulfilled in accordance with Faculty of Science requirements. Students may, with the approval of the Science Information Centre (email@example.com), undertake an optional Minor program in Arts, Commerce, Kinesiology, or Land and Food Systems in conjunction with General Science. Co-operative education (co-op) is another option. See Co-op and Minor Options. General Science students are not eligible to pursue other types of specializations.
To satisfy the requirement of at least 30 credits of Science courses numbered 300 and above, the student may select one of two routes within General Science:
Courses selected must be acceptable for major or honours options in the specific areas of concentration. At most 3 credits of directed studies may be included in the minimum 30 upper-level science credits under either Route A or Route B, above, and at most a total of 6 credits of directed studies courses may be counted toward a General Science degree.
Students who successfully complete the B.Sc. in General Science Route A will have recorded on their transcript the area or areas of concentration.
