Requirements for the different types of Programs

B.Sc. students admitted since Fall 2009 can only select programs from within their group. Here is a complete listing of the B.Sc. program groups. Note that you can take a Minor or a second Liberal Core Science Component (CSC) from another group, but your first program must come from within your group. If you are doing the B.Sc. Liberal, you won't be able to declare a second CSC from outside of your own group using MINERVA, so if you wish to do this, please e-mail your academic adviser with the request, and he or she will arrange to have your record updated accordingly.

Here is more detailed information about the degree programs that you can select within each program group.
