Honours Bachelor of Science (Physics Major with Concentration in Biomedical Physics) (TB)

Four Year program
A program designed for students interested in medical physics, medicine, biotechnology instrumentation, or biological physics research. A cumulative average of 70% is required in Physics, Biology and Chemistry courses for the HBSc (Physics) with Major Concentration in Biomedical Physics.

First Year:
(a) Physics 1211 and 1212
(b) Mathematics 1171 and 1172
(c) Chemistry 1110 and 1130
(d) One-half FCE elective
(e) One-half FCE elective from Type E course list
(f) Computer Science 0411 or 1411
(g) Biology 2171

Second Year:
(a) Physics 2151, 2211, 2311, 2331 and 2332
(b) Mathematics 2111 and 2131
(c) Biology 2230
(d) Chemistry 2211
(e) One-half FCE elective

Third Year:
(a) Physics 2111, 3113, 3211, 3231 and 3511
(b) Physics 2510
(c) Mathematics 3131
(d) Biology 2711 and 2910
(e) One-half FCE elective

Fourth Year:
(a) Physics 4411 and 4412
(b) One-half FCE elective in Physics
(c) One-half FCE elective in Physics at the third or fourth year level
(d) One-half FCE elective in Physics at the fourth year level
(e) One and one-half FCE (excluding Physics) from the Applied Bio-Molecular Science List of Recommended Courses (see Applied Bio-Molecular Science Programs)
(f) One FCE elective

Notes:
1. An Honours Physics Thesis (Physics 4501) can be used in place of the lab courses (Physics 4411 and 4412) or as an open elective. It cannot be used to replace Physics electives.
2. Students can switch to the Honours Physics program after second year.
3. Due to course rotation some courses may need to be taken out of sequence.
4. 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.

Four-year Non-Direct Entry program option

Bachelor of Science (Physics Major with Concentration in Biomedical Physics) 4-year

This program options is for Honours students that are academically ineligible to continue in or complete the Honours program.

The program requirements are the same as for the HBSc (Physics) with Major Concentration in Biomedical Physics program, except that students shall not take the honours thesis (Physics 4501) and in order to remain in the program, students must maintain at least an overall C average in the major and in the major concentration. All course choices in the fourth year must be approved by the department Chairs.
