Notes:

1The courses required in this program will satisfy the University Mathematics requirement and the University Written English requirement.

2PHYS 1050 may be used in lieu of PHYS 1020.

3MATH 1510 or MATH 1520 may be used in lieu of MATH 1500.

4Among the Geological Sciences Electives, Major students must complete 18 credit hours consisting of 3 credit hours from Group B with the remaining 15 credit hours from Group A or B.

5Students will register for GEOL 3910 and GEOL 4910 in Summer term. NOTE: Students should be aware that they are expected to contribute to transportation and accommodation costs. See the department office at the beginning of each year for information.

IMPORTANT: The Honours and Major programs need not be completed in the manner prescribed 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. (Letters in brackets indicate the minimum prerequisite standing in a specific course required for entry to the program).

GEOL 1400 is highly recommended to be taken in Year 1, but will not be considered when assessing entrance requirements to the program. If this requirement is not fulfilled in Year 1, it must be completed by the end of Year 2.

NOTE:

  • To fulfil prerequisite requirements, a grade of 'C' must be achieved in any course stipulated as prerequisite to a further course in Geological Sciences, unless a higher prerequisite is stipulated in a course description.
  • 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 pay a portion of the costs associated with field trips. For details, contact the Department general office.
  • Equivalent courses offered through Université de Saint Boniface may be used in lieu of the specified courses identified in the degree program chart. Université de Saint-Boniface courses end in the number '1' (e.g. CHEM 1301).
