Bachelor of Science

You Have Thousands of Options

Western's modular system allows you to combine a Science module with a module in another discipline to tailor your degree to fit your interests and aspirations. For example, if you are planning to complete a four-year Honors Bachelor Degree, you can pursue an Honors Specialization in Earth Sciences, combined with a Minor in Philosophy. An honors degree can also be constructed from two different Major modules, either with both in Science or one in Science plus a non-Science. At Western, there are literally thousands of possible combinations of modules.
