Department of Physics, College of Physical and Engineering Science.

Honours Program Major

Since some of the required courses are not offered every semester, students entering the Major in Biophysics (Co-op) should plan their program in consultation with the Physics Departmental Advisor.

To graduate from the Co-op program a minimum of 4 successfully completed work terms is normally required.

This major requires the completion of 21.25 credits as indicated below:
