University of Guelph 2001-2002 Undergraduate Calendar

X--Degree Programs, Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.)

The University of Guelph offers general and honours programs leading to the B.Sc. degree. The general program consists of a minimum of 15.00 credits (usually 30 semester courses) involving normally 6 semesters of study. The requirements for the honours program is a minimum of 20.00 credits (usually 40 semester courses) which may be obtained over 8 semesters of study. Some majors may require more than 20.00 credits.

The Three Semester System

Most of the B.Sc. programs operate on the three semester system. In this system each of the Fall, Winter and Spring semesters is of 12 weeks' duration. Two semesters are equivalent to 1 academic year at a university on the traditional system. In the three semester system, students may vary their rate of progress towards graduation. However, since many science courses must be taken in a certain sequence and not all courses are offered each semester, most science students are required to proceed from semester to semester in restricted patterns. Furthermore, the advanced courses of the honours programs are offered only in the regular fall and winter semesters. Additional information may be obtained from Admissions Services, Office of Registrarial Services. The three-semester system and the pass-by-course method of advancement allow considerable flexibility of program arrangement. In addition, a variety of program contents is available which the student may modify to meet individual requirements.

Transfer from One B.Sc. Program to Another

On entrance to the B.Sc. program, the student may elect to follow an intended area of specialization or to postpone this decision until a later semester. The choice of a particular program of study may be most effectively made at the end of Semester 3 or 4. Judicious selection of courses in each and every semester will allow the easiest transfer between programs without incurring the need for additional semesters of study. The program counsellor of the particular college from which it is anticipated that the majority of science courses will be taken should be consulted for advice.

Program Regulations

General Program Requirements

The general B.Sc. degree requires the successful completion of 15.00 credits. Normally 2.50 credits (usually 5 courses) are taken in each semester so that the degree may be completed in 6 semesters. The general science program is designed to give a broad general training in biological science, chemistry, physics and mathematical science. This is achieved by requiring each student to take a minimum of 1.50 credits (usually 3 courses) in each of the above areas. The courses to be taken in semesters 4 to 6 may be selected to allow a broad study of the sciences.

Honours Program Requirements

In order to graduate in the honours program, students must fulfill the course requirements for the program and have achieved a 60%, or higher, cumulative average. Normally 2.50 credits (usually 5 courses) are taken in each semester so that the degree may be completed in generally 8 semesters. The following types of honours programs are offered:

Honours Major

These programs permit a student to study science in greater depth than is permitted by the general program. The student is required to take a minimum of 1.00 credit (usually 2 courses) in each of biological science, chemistry, physics and mathematical science. In each of semesters 3 to 8, students select science credits so that the total program provides a broad science training with concentration in an area of physical science or biological science.

A major normally consists of certain prescribed courses (minimum of 8.00 credits) and a number of elective courses to complete the requirements for the degree. The composition of science courses selected must contain a sufficient number (minimum of 6.00 credits) of 3000 and 4000 level courses including a grouping (minimum of 2.00 credits) particularly at the 4000 level. A major program may be studied in conjunction with a minor in an area of science, humanities or social science. Students should seek advice from the program counsellor of either the College of Biological Science or the College of Physical and Engineering Science dependent upon their primary area(s) of interest. Refer to B.Sc. Program Requirements: Regulation 6. Double-Counting of Credits.

Honours Minor

A minor is a group of courses which provides for exposure to and mastery of the fundamental principles of a subject. A minor consists of a minimum of 5.00 credits (normally 10 courses). It may also require certain other courses from other areas to be taken along with the specified courses of the minor. A minor is taken in conjunction with a major.

B.Sc. Program Requirements

Regulations 1, 2, 3 and 4 apply to all B.Sc. students.

Akademia

Akademia is a first-year program with an integrated arts and science curriculum and a living-learning component based on specially designed residence arrangements. The program will suit qualified applicants who want to pursue a liberal education prior to making a commitment to specialize. Entry to this first-year experience is through the B.A. or B.Sc. degree program. For further information contact the Akademia Counsellor and request the program guide.

Bio-Medical Science (BIOM)

Department of Biomedical Sciences and Department of Human Biology and Nutritional Sciences.

Coordinator: G. Partlow, OVC Room 1685

This joint program of the Department of Human Biology and Nutritional Sciences and the Department of Biomedical Sciences focuses on the maintenance and promotion of human and animal health through the study of function (biochemistry and physiology), structure (anatomy and histology), and the basic medical sciences (epidemiology and pharmacology). It will permit graduates from this B.Sc. program to contribute to society in the area of health maintenance. The program is a good preparation for students intending to develop professional or research careers in the medical and biological sciences. Through the use of electives, students may structure a program emphasizing either nutritional sciences or principles of health and disease prevention. For more information on recommended electives contact the co-ordinator of the major.

Admission to this major is in semester 3, and is competitive based on overall academic achievement. To be considered for admission, students must have a minimum cumulative average of 70% in 10 semester courses as prescribed by the schedule of studies. Meeting these minimum requirements does not guarantee admission to the major. Signature of the co-ordinator is required.

Additional students may be admitted to semester 5 or 7 if space is available. Admission is competitive based on academic performance. To be considered, students must have a semester average of at least 70% in each of the previous 2 full-time semesters (or equivalent) and the signature of the co-ordinator.

Students who are lacking in the fundamentals of word processing, spread sheet use and data management should arrange to complete CIS*1000 as early in their program as possible.

This program is designed to partially meet the current requirements for an entry into medical schools in Ontario (a student interested in meeting these requirements should check the present admission requirements for the medical schools); as well as entry into the DVM program of the Ontario Veterinary College.

Live animals and/or animal tissues are used for teaching purposes in some courses in the Bio-Medical Science Major. This must be accepted by students admitted by the program. All animals are protected under the Animals for Research Act of Ontario (1980), the Guidelines for the Care and Use of Experimental Animals (Canadian Council on Animal Care), and the Animal Care Policies of the University of Guelph.
