You can receive a B.Sc. or a B.A. upon completion of one of our modules. For a B.Sc. you must complete 11.0 science courses out of 20.0 courses for a 4 year degree while registered in the Faculty of Science.
Students that have not taken Grade 12U Biology (SBI4U), Grade 12U Chemistry (SCH4U), and/or a Grade 12U Mathematics should consult with the Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics Departments, respectively, to discuss options for taking the appropriate first year courses that will be equivalent to or provide entry into the admission courses required for the Environmental Science modules.
