The Faculty offers three programs leading to the Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree: Honors, Specialization, and General.
The Faculty also offers a Bachelor of Science with Specialization in Science Education which is part of a five year BSc/BEd combined degrees program.
The four-year Honors programs are primarily for students who seek careers in scientific research. In addition, they prepare students for admission to graduate school, leading to a Master of Science (MSc) or a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree.
The four-year Specialization programs do not concentrate on one subject to the same extent as the Honors programs. This allows students to choose from a broader range of courses and to take a greater number of courses in a secondary area of interest. They can provide the background necessary for admission to graduate schools, in some cases, and permit attainment of professional status in others.
The four-year General program provides a general education with a scientific emphasis for students who seek careers in business, teaching, medicine, dentistry, etc.
In many cases, transfer from one degree program to another can be easily arranged to suit students' changing ambitions, needs, or academic qualifications.
