Notes

  1. Honours Physics and Co-op Physics students may select MATH 137/138 instead of MATH 127/128 if they have more than an 80% average in OAC mathematics and physics. MATH 137/138 is the appropriate choice for students intending to graduate with a Minor in Mathematics.

    Students wishing a Biophysics Option with the Honours Physics program are advised to include BIOL 111/112 in their program.

    Students wishing any of the Business Administration Options with the Honours Physics program are advised to select ECON 101/102.

  2. Students in the Co-operative Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, and Physics programs have two methods of taking Year One: (a) two terms in a row "8-stream" (September-April) or (b) Fall term on campus "4-stream" (September-December), Winter term at work (January-April) and Spring term on campus (May-August). Only 8-stream is available for students in Co-operative Environmental Chemistry and Environmental Science, Programs 1 and 2.
  3. CS 100 must be taken before CS 102 by students with no computing background from high school.
  4. Students intending to apply to this program should make the course selections as outlined, but admission to the program will be made at the Year Two level.
  5. Recommended Electives for Year One
    Biology: EARTH 121/122, 121L/122L; PHYS 111/112, 111L/112L
    Biochemistry (Biotechnology Option): (This program begins in Year Three.) BIOL 240 in Year One
    Biology and Environment and Resource Studies: (This program begins in Year Two.) one ERS course each term
    Chemistry (Math Option): (This program begins in Year Two.) MATH 125 in Year One and one CS elective in Year One or Year Two
    Chemical Physics: ENGL 109, 140; PHIL 215
    Environmental Science Programs 1 and 2: BIOL 273, CS 102, GEOG 102. BIOL 240 should be completed by the end of Year Two
    Optometry: SOC 101 or one PSYCH 102A-Z offering
    Physics: Year One Chemistry may be replaced by Year One Biology or Earth Sciences courses.
    Honours Psychology/Science: One of PSYCH 207, 211, 253, 257, or 261
    Honours Science and Business: MATH 125
    Honours Science Program 1: MATH 107/108, CS 102
