Program vs. Faculty Regulations

Regulations governing programs in Natural Sciences are a combination of general Faculty of Science regulations and the additional program specific regulations listed below. It is essential for students to be familiar with both sets of regulations. It is helpful to read Section 3 (Faculty Regulations) first.

Students are advised to check the Degree Navigator periodically to ensure that all requirements are being met.

Enrolment Limitations

A graduation requirement for students in the Natural Sciences program is the completion of two concentrations; see "Declaration of Concentrations". Entry into a given concentration may be subject to enrolment limitations. Students should refer to Subsection 3.3 on Enrolment Limitations under Section 3 (Faculty Regulations), and the sections on enrolment limitations under the regulations of the Department offering the courses in which the student is interested. Students who declare a concentration in an area with enrolment limitations will be subject to the same selection criteria as students intending to major or minor in that area.

Students Intending to Transfer to Other Science Programs

Students who enter the Natural Sciences program with the intention of transferring to another program offered by the Faculty of Science are advised to follow the requirements and sequence of their intended program. Particularly in the first two years, the flexibility of the Natural Sciences program makes it relatively easy for students who decide not to transfer to another Science program to remain in and complete a Natural Sciences degree.
