NOTES:

1 Entrance into the degree programs is summarized in 6.2.1 in this Chapter.

2 The courses required in this program will satisfy the University Mathematics requirement.

PHYS 1050 and PHYS 1070 may be used in lieu of PHYS 1020 and PHYS 1030, respectively.

4 MATH 1230, MATH 1510 or MATH 1520 may be used in lieu of MATH 1500; or MATH 1690 may be used in place of MATH 1500 (or equivalent) and MATH 1700; or MATH 1310 may be used in lieu of MATH 1300; or MATH 1232 or MATH 1710 may be used in lieu of MATH 1700.

5 GEOL 1440 may be used in lieu of GEOL 1340.

BIOL 1000 and BIOL 1010 may be used in lieu of BIOL 1020 and BIOL 1030.

7 Equivalent courses offered through Universit√© de Saint-Boniface may be used in lieu of the specified courses identified in the degree program chart. Universit√© de Saint-Boniface courses end in the number 1 (e.g. GEOG 1291).

8 The former GEOG 2440 may be used in lieu of GEOG 2272.

9 The former GEOG 3680 may be used in lieu of GEOG 3810.

10 The former GEOG 2530 may be used in lieu of ENVR 2810.

Note:
To fulfil prerequisite requirements a grade of 'C' must be achieved, unless otherwise stated, in any course stipulated as a prerequisite to a further course.

  • Students should review the course topics available for GEOG 3740 (6), GEOG 3750 (3), GEOG 3760 (6), GEOG 3770 (3) and GEOG 4670 (3). Also, all courses are not offered every year. The course schedule for the current academic term is available from the Class Schedule.
  • Students registering in certain courses may be required to participate in field trips or field components and pay a portion of the associated expenses. For details, contact the Department of Environment and Geography general office.

IMPORTANT: The Honours and Major programs need not be completed in the course order described in the chart above. The chart indicates one possible arrangement of the required courses and is meant to be a guide around which students can plan their program.
