Basic science and its relevance to the real world

Most of our programs allow you to pursue a specialization—a collection of courses emphasizing an application area of a discipline, each oriented towards an important and relevant real-world theme.

Alternatively, choose to study through the comprehensive Honours program where you can select courses of interest in consultation with your professors and academic advisor.

Interdisciplinarity as a core element of all Science programs

From finding a cure for cancer to developing new ways to produce and conserve energy, many of society’s most important and difficult technological problems require knowledge of more than one traditional discipline.

This philosophy is embedded in all Science programs, from the multidisciplinary first-year program of study to the integration of courses from several disciplines within our major programs. Our Forensic Science program is perhaps the foremost example, which integrates courses in biology and chemistry with courses related to law and crime scene science.
