Minor in Science

You are reading the 2022/23 Academic Calendar. The 2021/22 version remains in effect until 31 August 2022 and is available here

A Minor in Science enables a Bachelor of Design student to explore any of the disciplines taught in the Faculty of Science through a customized program of study.

The program of study may be comprised of either an 18 credit Minor in Science or a 30 credit subject-specific Minor in Science as noted below.

An 18 credit minimum Minor in Science must be comprised of courses in the Faculty of Science toward a B.Sc. degree and must consist of a minimum of 18 upper-level (300-400) credits towards a B.Sc. major or honours in either a single subject or field of specialization together with any necessary prerequisites for those upper-level courses. The 18 credit minor program requires approval from a Faculty of Science advisor and the Chair of the Bachelor of Design or their designate. Upon successful completion, the notation of ‘Minor in Science’ will be added to the student transcript

A 30 credit minimum Minor in a subject or field of specialization must be comprised of courses towards a B.Sc. in either a single subject or field of specialization as identified in the Calendar for which at least 18 credits are numbered 300 or higher. The minor program requires approval from the discipline-specific advisor in the Faculty of Science and the Chair of the Bachelor of Design. Upon successful completion, the notation of ‘Minor in [subject or field of specialization]’ will be added to the student transcript.

There exist some named Minors in the faculty of Science which require fewer than thirty credits. These minor programs also require approval from the discipline-specific advisor in the Faculty of Science and the Chair of the Bachelor of Design. Upon successful completion, the notation ‘Minor in [subject or field of specialization]’ will be added to the student transcript.
