Liberal

LIBERAL PROGRAM

(47-48 credits)

The Liberal program provides the least amount of specialization, in comparison with the Honours or Major, which has the advantage of allowing the student a broader and more general knowledge base.  Students completing the Liberal program must also complete a Science Minor, an Arts Minor or Major Concentration, or a Core Science Component in another discipline.

The full program description can be found in the eCalendar:

Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) - Liberal Program - Core Science Component Anatomy and Cell Biology

Be sure to review this information carefully! It is your responsibility to ensure that you're meeting the requirements for your program.

The program plan below is recommended and will allow you to complete the Liberal program in three years. It may be possible to change the order in which you complete some of your requirements, in consultation with the ACB program advisor.

You can use the PDF icon ACB Liberal program form to keep track of your progress during your degree. Bring or email a copy of your updated form when you go for program advising.
