Environmental Geoscience & Geomatics

Students who lack Grade 12 Physics would modify their Schedule of Studies as follows:

Semester 1:

  • BIOL 1070
  • CHEM 1040
  • ENVS 1050
  • MATH 1080 or 1200
  • PHYS 1300

PHYS 1300 will replace the requirement for PHYS 1130.

Semester 2:

  • BIOL 1090
  • CHEM 1050
  • GEOG 1300
  • PHYS  1080
  • 0.50 Arts or Social Science Electives

Students who lack Grade 12 Chemistry would modify their Schedule of Studies as follows:

Semester 1:

  • BIOL 1070
  • CHEM 1060
  • ENVS 1050
  • MATH 1080 or 1200
  • PHYS 1080

Semester 2:

  • BIOL 1090
  • CHEM 1040
  • GEOG 1300
  • PHYS  1130
  • 0.50 Arts or Social Science Electives

Semester 3:

  • CHEM 1050
  • GEOG  2000
  • GEOG  2420
  • GEOG  2480
  • GEOG  2460 or STAT2040

The 0.50 credits in Arts or Social Science Electives normally taken in Semester 3 would then be moved to the future semester of your choice.

Students who lack Grade 12 Biology

The BIOL 1070, 1080 and 1090 courses are designed so that students should be successful even if they have not taken Grade 12 (4U) biology. You can register directly in BIOL 1070/1080/1090 according to your Schedule of Studies. This assumes that you have successfully completed Grade 11 biology.

There is a Grade 12 (4U) biology equivalent course which is BIOL 1020. This does not count as a first year biology course since it is equivalent to Grade 12. If you take BIOL 1020, you still need to take BIOL 1070 and BIOL 1090 for the EGG major. BIOL 1020 would then be applied as an elective.

If you register for BIOL 1070/1080/1090, and find that the material is overwhelming, there is time to switch to BIOL 1020 during the first week of classes.

If you choose to take BIOL 1020, please contact your Program Counsellor for advice on how to best modify your Schedule of Studies.
