Bachelor of Science (Agricultural and Environmental Sciences) – B.Sc.(Ag.Env.Sc.)

General rules for the following B.Sc.(Ag.Env.Sc.) programs

General rules for the following B.Sc.(Ag.Env.Sc.) programs

Students register in one major and at least one specialization. They may design their own program by choosing one of the four majors and at least one of the 20 specializations. By choosing two different specializations, students have the option of developing their own interdisciplinary interests. The multidisciplinary specializations are designed for those interested in broad training.

All the required and complementary courses for the major must be completed in full. Within each specialization, at least 18 credits must be unique; that is, they only count for that specialization and do not overlap with either the major or a second specialization. At least 54 credits of the 90 credits required for the degree (120 for students admitted to the Freshman year) must be from 300-level courses or higher; of this at least 12 credits must be from 400-level courses or higher.

Note: Below the program description for each major is a suggested list of specializations that complement the major.

Majors:

  • Agricultural Economics
  • Agro-environmental Sciences
  • Environmental Biology
  • International Agriculture and Food Systems
  • Life Sciences (Biological and Agricultural)
  • Major in Environment (see McGill School of Environment > Major in Environment – B.Sc.(Ag.Env.Sc.) and B.Sc.)
