Description:Like its counterpart BA, a bachelor of science degree can be a diverse education in more than one science, or in a specific science. At the U of A, for example, you may take a major and a minor. This may be the launch of your career in research, consulting and other scientific endeavors. Or, your BSc may be to fulfill the requirements for another area of study such as pharmacy, medicine, or dentistry.

You'll learn--and experiment--in state of the art labs in the Bill Kondro wing. Visit us during Open House, or come for a tour.

Admission requirements for a Bachelor of Science degree vary, depending upon the area of interest, university admission requirements, and courses required in the degree. Some science programs require Biology 30, Chemistry 30, and Physics 30, so students with all three Grade 12 science courses are best prepared to pursue a variety of options in the sciences. However, for this particular degree, students starting at Lakeland College require the following high school courses: Alberta high school prerequisites - English 30-1, Pure Math 30 or Math 30-1 (Math 30-2 may also be recommended for STAT 151 depending on the program), Biology 30, Chemistry 30, and Physics 30 (Pre-veterinary Medicine at U of S, Pre-medicine at U of A, Pre-dentistry at U of S and U of A, Bachelor of Science: General at U of S and U of A); Saskatchewan High School Prerequisites - English A30/B30, Math A30/B30/C30 or Pre-calculus 30 (Foundations of Math 30 may also recommended for STAT 151 depending on the program), Biology 30, Chemistry 30, and Physics 30 (Pre-veterinary Medicine at U of S, Pre-medicine at U of A, Pre-dentistry at U of S and U of A, Bachelor of Science: General at U of S and U of A).
