Congratulations on being accepted into the Bachelor of Science degree program. Science is a cornerstone of today’s developments in technology, medicine, agriculture and more. Throughout your program you will explore scientific concepts and engage with leading scientists who conduct cutting-edge research in their fields. Through inquiry-based programs in the Faculty of Science you will have multiple opportunities for hands-on learning experiences in our research facilities, and continually develop the critical thinking skills necessary to create, discover and innovate.
The Bachelor of Science degree is offered as either a B.Sc., or B.Sc. (Honours). They both require the completion of 20.0 full course equivalents (120 credits) and normally four years of full-time study. An internship program is available for students majoring in Computer Science and students in Actuarial Science, Applied Chemistry or Ecology can combine their degree with cooperative education. Students interested in pursuing a career as a K-12 teacher can complete a five-year concurrent degree with the Werklund School of Education. More information on the concurrent BSc/BEd degree is provided below, in the Education section of the First-Year Degree Guide and in the University Calendar.
