Concurrent General Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Education

Lab student

The General Science program gives you maximum flexibility to explore the sciences in a three-year degree program. 

Program Descriptions 

The BSc General Science program is a great way to explore your interests in science. The program offers a solid foundation in two core science areas chosen from biological sciences, chemistry and biochemistry, computer science, earth and environmental sciences, mathematics, physics, and economics. There is room in the program to explore other areas of interest as well. 

Many students transfer to any of the more specialized four-year BSc Honours programs, an easy transition with appropriate course selection. Some students choose to build a solid science foundation with their three-year General Science degree, then add specialized technical lab skills with a one- or two-year college program.

With program counseling and careful planning, a three-year, general degree in science can fulfill requirements to proceed to further professional training in health, education, law and business.
