2 IMPORTANT: The programs need not be completed in the manner prescribed in the chart above. The charts indicate one possible arrangement of the 120 credit hours that make up the degree and are meant to be a guide around which students can plan their programs with a view to satisfying the prerequisites of the required courses. These 120 credit hours are a combination of the courses outlined in the charts above and elective courses chosen by the student in consultation with the program advisors.

3 Courses from other departments or faculties may be acceptable for use towards the 21 credit hours of 3000/4000 level Biological Sciences courses required in the Honours and Major Degree programs.  Please consult with the department for permission to use alternate courses.

(The number 6 in brackets indicates a six credit hour course.)
