What will I learn?

An Honours B.Sc. normally requires the completion of 120 units, including a set of courses in a specific discipline and allows for interdisciplinary, and/or liberal arts studies through electives from other Departments and Faculties. An Honours B.Sc. with Specialization or Sub-Plan requires the completion of the same courses required for the Honours program, as well as designated upper level courses in a specialized area of study.

Honours Integrated Science is a limited enrolment, interdisciplinary research-based science program designed to develop students as broadly educated research scientists capable of contributing to all modern fields of science. Program courses will develop scientific understanding through integration of multiple disciplines in the study of a series of relevant themes or problems. Many disciplines of science will contribute toward courses offered in the Integrated Science program. Students will be involved in individual and team research projects throughout the program.
