Admission

Students accepted into the BSc (NTSC)/BEd concurrent degree program must meet the requirements for admission into the Natural Sciences Program and the departments of their two concentrations. Students will be required to choose two concentrations from Biology, Chemistry or Physics when applying for admission; it is not possible to complete the concurrent degree with the other concentrations offered within the Natural Sciences. Students interested in Mathematics education should consider the BSc (General Mathematics)/BEd concurrent degree program. Students in the concurrent degree program should also consult the information on the program in the Werklund School of Education portion of the calendar

Note: Admission to the program is competitive and meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission. Students interested in the concurrent degree program should consult the Undergraduate Science Centre at the earliest possible opportunity.

Continuation

Students must maintain satisfactory standing in both the Faculty of Science and the Werklund School of Education throughout their degree to remain in the concurrent degree program. For more information, refer to the Faculty Regulations sections of both faculties. All education requirements must be completed at the University of Calgary. Please consult the Werklund School of Education for more full details on the education portion/regulations of the concurrent degree.

Program Structure

The program is divided into a Science portion, which consists of 90 units (15.0 full-course equivalents) and an Education portion, which consists of 60 units (10.0 full-course equivalents). The outline of the concurrent degree is shown in the suggested course sequence below. Students will complete the first two full years (90 units (15.0 full-course equivalents)) in the Faculty of Science. In years 4 and 5, students will complete the education portion of the degree. Students should consult the Werklund School of Education for complete details of years 4 and 5 of their degree. In the Education portion of the program in Year 5, a project course is required amalgamating Science and Education. This course replaces the 500-level Science project course (Science 501) and an option required in the regular Natural Sciences program.

Science Portion (90 units (15.0 full-course equivalents))

In the Science portion, the following concentrations are possible: Biology, Chemistry and Physics.

The requirements are the same as for the Natural Sciences Major program as specified in the Program Structure except that the 6 units (1.0 full-course equivalent) Natural Science specific course requirements (Science 301, 501) and the 3.0 full-course equivalents) Non-Science options are replaced by:

3 units (0.5 full-course equivalent) - English

3 units (0.5 full-course equivalent) - Education 201

3 units (0.5 full-course equivalent) - Science 403

15 units (2.5 full-course equivalents) - Options

Education Portion (60 units (10.0 full-course equivalents))

For details see the information in the Werklund School of Education portion of the calendar.

1Students should refer to registration materials at the following website (ucalgary.ca/degreeguide/) to determine recommended first-year Mathematics courses based on their concentration.

2Refer to the Science Breadth Requirement found in 4.6.3.1 Required Courses - Major Program - 4. Science Breadth. A Computer Science course is recommended.

Note: This schedule is somewhat adjustable to accommodate individual programs. Options include any courses that are prerequisite to the concentration courses, but are from another field, and also include the Science Breadth Requirements.
