Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.Sc.)

Welcome to the Bachelor of Applied Science degree program!

As a B.A.Sc. student in Semester 1, you will normally select five courses (or 2.50 credits). Your courses are determined by the major into which you have been admitted. Your required courses for Semester 1 are listed below by major.


Advising Notes:

  • Where to find information: Answers to many of your questions about the B.A.Sc. program are found on the Undergraduate tab on the Family Relations and Applied Nutrition website. Be sure to review our B.A.Sc. Course Selection & Waivers page.
  • Your Program Plan: Review the Schedule of Studies, that is the order in which you are advised to take courses, by going to the B.A.Sc. degree program section of the Undergraduate Calendar and clicking on your major. Then, click on the ‘Requirements’ tab for your major.
  • Pick your courses as soon as possible (see the course selection windows). Availability of desired sections may fill up quickly. Should you find that all sections of a required course are full, please contact your Program Counsellor (contact information below).
  • Webadvisor: You will use WebAdvisor to pick your courses. Detailed instructions on using WebAdvisor are available in the WebAdvisor Tutorial.
  • Building your Plan: Select your required courses first and build the rest of your schedule around these courses.
  • As you make your class schedule, ensure there are no conflicts in your timetable (i.e., that you do not have two classes or final exams at the same time.)
  • “Elective” courses are any course that you find interesting – make sure you pick one that you’re eligible to take (i.e., that you have the prerequisites). Here is more information on electives.
  • All Applied Human Nutrition students who do not have high school biology (or equivalent) must take BIOL*1020 instead of an elective in Semester 1.
  • Distance Education (DE) courses are an alternative way to take courses without meeting for regularly scheduled classes. If DE is an option, it will be noted in the course description. You will find DE course times listed in WebAdvisor as TBD (to be determined) because they do not have synchronous class times as you work independently.
