University of Calgary Calendar 2022-2023 Faculty of Science 4. Program Details 4.1 Biological Sciences 4.1.9 Double Major in the Department of Biological Sciences
4.1.9 Double Major in the Department of Biological Sciences

Programs with two major fields in the Department of Biological Sciences may be completed in the following manner:

  • The minimum requirements for both major fields must be fulfilled.
  • For all programs the following courses will be counted towards both majors if they are allowed as a major field option: Biology 241, 243, 311, 313, 315, 331, 371; Biochemistry 393, 431, 443; Cellular, Molecular and Microbial Biology 411.
  • For all major fields in the Department of Biological Sciences, no course beyond those specified above will be counted towards both major fields. If a course constitutes a requirement in both major fields, it will be counted towards only one and a substitution must be made to fulfill the requirements of the other major field.
  • It is not possible to combine the Biological Sciences major with any other program offered by the Department into a Double-Major program.

For further details consult the Office of Student Affairs, Department of Biological Sciences.
