First year students must complete a minimum of 24 credit hours to be able to enter a Major or Honours degree program in the Faculty of Science in Year 2. You are not required to declare your intended Major until the end of first year, or once you have completed 24-30 credit hours of course work.
If you are entering the Faculty of Science directly from High School, you are automatically admitted into a 4-year undeclared Major program in first year.
If you are a U1 Student, you will transit after year one either directly to a Faculty of Science BSc. Four Year Major program, provided that the requirements have been met, or to the Faculty of Science BSc. General Degree, once you have completed any 24-30 credit hours of course work.
Knowing your area of interest will help you select year one courses that are most relevant to your intended Major / Honours program.
We recommend you follow the University 1 First-Year Planning Guide to determine first year courses required to complete a Science undergraduate degree, or you may wish to consult our Program Planning Sheets.
