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:

  • 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. 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 (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).
  • You will use WebAdvisor to pick your courses. Detailed instructions on using WebAdvisor are available in the WebAdvisor Tutorial.
  • 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). Please see the list of suggested first year 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).
