Requirements

Along with the Environmental Science core requirements, students in the biology stream must complete the following courses:

  • Biology 2010, 2122
  • Chemistry 1200/1001 or chemistry 1011*/1031* or chemistry 1050/1051*, and one of chemistry 2210 or 2301 or 2440 or 2400/2401, or chemistry 1010/1011* and chemistry 2440
  • Environmental science 3110, 3130, 3131, 4132, 4140 (or equivalent field course)
  • Two of Environmental Science 4069, 4131, 4133, 4240, 4479
  • One additional laboratory (science/statistics/GIS) course beyond the first year level excluding environmental science core courses. A course used to fulfill a stream requirement cannot also be used as a course in the environmental science core.

* Note that these chemistry courses are also offered at the St. John's campus

Notes:

  1. A selection of the category (d) Core courses are planned to fit with the required second year courses, and a selection of the category (c) Core courses are planned to fit with the required third year courses.
  2. It should be noted that the courses are shown in the semesters in which they are usually offered. In certain years, it may be necessary to offer a particular course in a different semester to that shown.
  3. The suggested program sequence shown above is for guidance and students may alter the order in which courses are taken. However, students should be aware that many courses have one or more prerequisites and these limit the possible variations in programs. Also, it is intended that the courses shown will, whenever possible, be timetabled to fit. Students are not guaranteed that other arrangements will be practicable.
