HBSc (Applied Life Sciences major) with Specialization in Biomedical Techniques and Diploma in Biotechnology-Health (Lakehead/Georgian Partnership) (O)

Four Year program

This combined degree/diploma program is offered combined by Lakehead University and Georgian College. Students will concurrently pursue the HBSc (Applied Life Sciences major) with Specialization in Biomedical Techniques offered by Lakehead University and the Biotechnology - Health diploma offered by Georgian College.

The first and second years of the program are offered on the Barrie campus of Georgian College; the third and fourth years are offered on the Orillia campus of Lakehead University.  Students must successfully complete the following Lakehead and *Georgian courses in order to receive both the diploma and the degree. 

Based on the successful completion of the 8 *Georgian courses listed, a total of 4.0 FCEs will be credited towards the HBSc (Applied Life Science) with Specialization in Biomedical Techniques.

Within the program requirements, the Biomedical Techniques Specialization consists of the following 3 full course equivalents:

0.5 FCE from Biomedical Techniques List 1
0.5 FCE from Biomedical Techniques List 2
0.5 FCE from Philosophy 2511, Anthropology 3312, Biology 4372
1.5 FCE *Georgian Courses: *Biology 2013, *Biology 2015, *Biology 2014 or *Biology 2016

An overall average of at least 70% in all required courses, including those specified in Lists 1, 2 and 3 for third and fourth year of the program, but not including the open electives must be maintained. Should the 70% average not be attained, the student may apply for the BSc (Applied Life Sciences Major) with Specialization in Biomedical Techniques.

Notes:

1. A maximum of 0.5 FCE per term and a maximum of 1.0 FCE per academic year can be taken from any combination of directed reading, independent research, and thesis courses. Students can only take one FCE thesis course in their honours degree. Exceptions require permission of the academic advisor. This applies to all courses in List 3. (Other examples of this type of course are: BIOL 3990, BIOL 4610, ANTH 4811.)

2. If the student is considering graduate school, it is strongly recommended that the 1.0 FCE from the courses on List 2 or 3 in Fourth Year include a thesis. Students need to arrange for a faculty supervisor before the start of Fourth Year if they wish to register in a thesis course.

3. The Indigenous Content Requirement is being met by the inclusion of 0.5 FCE chosen from the list of Type E courses taken as an elective in the third year of the program.
