Notes

1 A language course at the 1000 or 2000 level is strongly recommended.
* This course is beyond the requirements of the programs in science.
** This course is only offered in English once every second year (it is offered in French in opposite years).

This program can satisfy the academic requirements of the Association of Professional Geoscientists of Ontario. Check APGO website for current eligible courses which can be used for accreditation.

Most 3000 and 4000 level courses are offered in alternating years with the French equivalent.

For students registered in the Faculty of Science: If the components of your program of study require common compulsory courses, you will have to replace the units as follows: 
1) 1000-level courses must be replaced with electives; 
2) 2000-level courses and above must be replaced with courses from either discipline at the same level or above.

Once you have decided on the replacement courses, please inform the Office of Undergraduate Programs of the Faculty of Science by email at infosci@uOttawa.ca so we may amend your Rabaska audit accordingly.
 
Please note that all programs in the Faculty of Science require a minimum of 12 elective course units from the Faculty of Arts, Faculty of Education, Faculty of Law, Faculty of Social Sciences or the Telfer School of Management.

The extended French stream is available with this program.
Co-operative education is available with this program.
The minimum CGPA required to be on good academic standing is 5.0.
