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).

Students who take the Geology-Physics program and wish to become registered members of the Association of Professional Geoscientists of Ontario must take 21 units in Geology from among the optional courses in order to satisfy the requirements of the professional association.

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 Academic report accordingly.
 
Please note that all programs in the Faculty of Science require a minimum of 12 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
