Why study general science at Grenfell?

Science is about the origins of Earth and the understanding of the complex relationships between all its elements. It’s knowledge of plants and animals. It explains how a plane flies or a house is built - it’s the foundation of our lives. Grenfell’s general science degree program is unlike any other degree in Canada. It recognizes the unique scientific foundation that comes from a triple concentration.

Because of the interdisciplinary nature of the program, you’ll have a large number of course offerings to choose from. You’ll be led in classrooms by academics from diverse backgrounds and areas of expertise. Determining your concentrations will help you to define more clearly what your course load will look like.
