The Faculty of Science Dean's Multidisciplinary Undergraduate Research List recognizes Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) and (effective as of October 2013 graduation) Bachelor of Arts and Science (B.A. & Sc.) students who have participated in substantial and broad undergraduate science research.
To be placed on the Faculty of Science Dean's Multidisciplinary Undergraduate Research List (DMURL) at graduation time, a student must complete at least 9 credits of eligible research-based courses, taken for a letter grade. To find out if a research course you are considering taking is eligible to be counted towards the DMURL, contact the department responsible for the course.
Furthermore, considering all qualifying science research-based courses on your transcript at graduation time:
- at least one course, worth at least 3 credits, must be from a different unit than the other research-based courses; and
- every qualifying course must have been completed with a grade of C or above; and
- the average GPA over all qualifying courses must be 3.0 or above.
If these requirements are met, the mention "Dean's Multidisciplinary Undergraduate Research List" will be recorded on the student's transcript at graduation time.
No application is necessary for students who have taken eligible courses.
In exceptional circumstances, if students have taken a science research course not already deemed eligible, and wish for this course to be counted toward the Dean's Multidisciplinary Undergraduate Research List, they must make a special application. A qualifying course involves a science research project as its primary focus, culminating in a substantive written report. Ineligible courses include: reading courses; BASC 396 and BASC 449; and courses offered by the Faculty of Arts.
