  • FRHD*1100 Life: Health and Well-being
  • PSYC*1000 Introduction to Psychology
  • NUTR*1010 Introduction to Nutrition
  • ANTH*1150 Introduction to Anthropology or SOC*1100 Sociology
  • 0.50 elective –if you do not have high school biology, you must take BIOL*1020 instead of an elective in Semester 1.

APPLIED HUMAN NUTRITION

  • CHEM*1040 General Chemistry I
  • FRHD*1100 Life: Health and Well-being
  • HTM*2700 Understanding Foods**
  • PSYC*1000 Introduction to Psychology

** Note: HTM *2700 is recommended for Semester 1, if capacity in the class allows, but it can also be taken in Semester 2 by substituting NUTR *1010 Introduction to Nutrition in Semester 1.

  • PSYC*1000 Introduction to Psychology

Advising Notes:

  • Review the Schedule of Studies (the order in which you are advised to take courses). Go to the B.A.Sc. degree program section of the Undergraduate Calendar and click on your major. Here you will find your degree laid out by semester, with listings of courses that are available for selection throughout your studies.
  • Pick your courses as soon as possible. Availability of desired sections may fill up quickly.
  • You will use WebAdvisor to pick your courses. Detailed instructions on using WebAdvisor are available in the WebAdvisor Tutorial.
  • As you make your class schedule, ensure there are no conflicts in your timetable.
  • All B.A.Sc. students who do not have high school biology (or equivalent) must take BIOL*1020 instead of an elective in Semester 1.
  • Co-op students are required to maintain a minimum 70% average in first year over two full-time academic semesters (minimum 4.00 credits) to be eligible to continue in the Co-op program.

Course Selection Tips:

  • Download the Class Schedule Worksheet to assist in creating your schedule.
  • Select your required courses first and build the rest of your schedule around these courses.
  • “Elective” courses are any first year course that you find interesting – make sure you pick one that you’re eligible to take (i.e.: are there prerequisites?).
  • Distance Education (called DE) courses are an alternative way to take courses without meeting for regularly scheduled classes. You will find DE course times listed in WebAdvisor as TBA.
