In Addition

  • For students enrolled before Fall 2006:
    • SC/MATH 1025 3.00 'Applied Linear Algebra' [F,W]
    • or SC/MATH 1021 3.00 'Linear Algebra I' [F,W]
    • or SC/MATH 2015 3.00 'Applied Multivariate and Vector Calculus' [F]
    • or SC/MATH 2221 3.00 'Linear Algebra with Applications I' [F,W]
    • or SC/MATH 2310 3.00 'Calculus of Several Variables with Applications' [F,W]
  • Additional 1000-level SC credits for a minimum total of 24 1000-level SC credits
    • Students enrolled in Fall 2006 and later will need 3 further credits of 1000-level SC courses.
    • For students enrolled before Fall 2006, no other 1000-level credits are required if either SC/MATH 1025 3.00 or SC/MATH 1021 3.00 is chosen in the above option.
    • SC/BIOL 1010 6.00 (or the combination of SC/BIOL 1000 3.00 and 1001 3.00) is strongly recommended for students lacking OAC or 12U Biology (see Notes).
    • SC/CHEM 1500 4.0, SC/CHEM 1550 3.0, SC/MATH 1510 6.0, SC/MATH 1515 3.0 and all NATS courses are ineligible.
  • For students enrolled in or after Fall 2006, SC/CHEM 2050 4.00 'Introductory Biochemistry' [W] or equivalent is strongly advised. This is especially recommended if contemplating a transfer to a Specialized Honours degree.
  • Additional SC courses as needed for a minimum total of 66 SC credits - SC/CHEM 3080 4.00 'Instrumental Methods of Chemical Analysis' [W] is strongly recommended as preparation for many careers in Industry
  • Additional courses as needed for a minimum overall total of 90 credits

Notes

  • For all students admitted to York University in Fall 2001 and thereafter, the Senate of York University will require a minimum overall grade-point average of 4.00 in order to be eligible to graduate in an undergraduate BSc degree program
  • Since Summer 2011, SC/BIOL 1010 6.00 has been replaced by the combination of SC/BIOL 1000 3.00 and 1001 3.00. Either version is required for those wishing to take advanced courses in the biological areas (especially courses with SC/BIOL 2021 3.00/4.00 as prerequisite) or for students to transfer into the Specialized Honours program in Biochemistry or into the Pharmaceutical and Biological Chemistry stream.
