Notes:
1. 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 1st year of the program.
2. Students planning to major in Geology who lack OAC Chemistry or equivalent, must register for Chemistry 1050/1070 as a science elective. After successful completion of Chemistry 1050/1070 one of the following will apply:
(a) In Year 2 the student registers for Chemistry 1110/1130 as the elective course.
(b) If the final mark in Chemistry 1050/1070 is at least 80%, the Department may waive the Chemistry 1110/1130 requirement. In this case the student must select the Science elective in Year 2 of the program.
