 Requirements

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

  • Chemistry 1200/1001 or chemistry 1011*/1031* or chemistry 1050/1051* sequence. It is strongly recommended that students complete one of these sequences of chemistry courses in their first year.
  • Chemistry 2210, 2300, and 2400/2401 or equivalent
  • Environmental science 2261, 3210, 3211, 3260, 3261, 4230 
  • Two of environmental science 4069, 4131, 4240, 4249, 4479
  • Mathematics 1001 which should be completed in the first year of studies

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

​ENVS 4000 and ENVS 4950 can be completed in either semester.
*For ENVS course, general students will take any 2 of ENVS 4069, 4131, 4240, 4249, and 4479. It is important to ensure that the final year selection of other electives results in the completion of the General Education and Writing requirements.

​ENVS 4000  can be completed in either semester.
*For these ENVS courses, Honours students will take 3 of ENVS 4069, 4131, 41334240 and 4479. It is important to ensure that the final year selection of other electives results in the completion of the General Education and Writing requirements.

Notes:

  1. Statistics 2550 should be completed before taking ENVS 3210, hence the math course must be taken in second year.
  2. 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.
  3. The introductory biology courses, Biology 1001 and 1002, are placed in the second year of this schedule. To reduce the number of lab courses that have to be taken in the second year, it is suggested that Biology 1001 and 1002 can be taken in first year in place of the two electives. It is possible, though not recommended, to defer these courses to the third year and the Biology 2600 to the fourth year.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Under special circumstances, the Program Chair may agree to waive a prerequisite or convert it to a co-requisite.
