The Bachelor of Science (BSc) General program gives you a broad education in more than one branch of study. Students either complete two majors or one major and one minor. Majors are chosen from ten science subject areas.
If you enroll in the General program and intend to transfer to a BSc Specialization or Honors program in the Faculty of Science at University of Alberta (U of A), carefully follow the requirements for the latter program when selecting your courses (consult an Academic Advisor). This applies to all students intending to transfer to the Universities of Calgary (U of C) or Lethbridge (U of L) which do not offer a BSc General program.
The following content provides a basic understanding of General Science programs but does not contain specific details regarding specific course requirements. This information is current at the time of publication but may change as the universities change. their requirements. While the below schedule is complimentary to the majority of concentrations included within the University of Alberta’s BSc General program, as well as the University of Lethbridge’s General Science and University of Calgary’s BSc Natural Science programs, it is recommended you contact an academic advisor regarding your chosen major/university.
