1. Applying

If you are interested in pursuing undergraduate science studies at McGill, you should consider applying to any one of the following degrees:

› Bachelor of Science
› Bachelor of Arts & Science
› Bachelor of Arts

Undergraduate applications are handled by Enrolment Services. Visit mcgill.ca/applying to find out more about the application process, including application deadlines, admissions criteria, special requirements for specific programs, language proficiency requirements, visa requirements, transcript requirements, and more.

If you are already a McGill undergraduate student and wish to return to your studies after an absence of part of an academic year or longer, or you wish to transfer to the Faculty of Science from another McGill faculty, you will need to apply through the Science Office for Undergraduate Student Advising (SOUSA), not Enrolment Services. For more information, please see:

› Readmission
› Inter-faculty transfers

1.1 Applying to the Bachelor of Science degree

When you apply for admission to the Bachelor of Science degree, you will be asked to nominate one of the following program groups and a major/subject within that group:

  • Biological, Biomedical and Life Sciences Group
  • Bio-Physical-Computational Sciences Group
  • Neuroscience Group
  • Physical, Earth, Math and Computer Science Group

It is important to apply for the group that interests you most because, if you are admitted, your choice of a major or honours program will be limited to the options available in that group.

If you later decide you wish to pursue a program in a different program group, you will need to apply for an intra-faculty transfer, subject to academic performance, availability and other conditions.

1.1.2 Bachelor of Science program groups

The options available within each program group are as follows:

Biological, Biomedical and Life Sciences Group

Biological, Biomedical & Life Sciences Group

Taken from Programs, Courses and University Regulations 2020-2021 (last updated Aug. 24, 2020).

Bio-Physical-Computational Sciences Group

Neuroscience Group

Neuroscience Group

Major Program

Honours Program

Taken from Programs, Courses and University Regulations 2020-2021 (last updated Aug. 24, 2020).

Physical, Earth, Math and Computer Science Group

Physical, Earth, Math & Computer Science Group

Major Programs

Honours Programs

Taken from Programs, Courses and University Regulations 2020-2021 (last updated Aug. 24, 2020).

Only applicants with a Quebec CEGEP diploma may select the Neuroscience group. All other applicants may seek entry to the neuroscience program once they have completed a year at McGill and have satisfied the transfer requirements for Neuroscience. Note that admission to Neuroscience is competetive and meeting the minimum entrance/transfer requirements does not guarantee admission.

If you are likely to be granted exemptions from some or all of the freshman science requirements based on advanced standing or transfer credits, you can select a major/subject from your chosen group at the time of your application. Alternatively, you can select the option ‘Undeclared’ if you wish to make this decision at a later time.

If you are not likely to be granted exemptions from any of the freshman science requirements, select ‘Freshman Science’ as your major/subject.

The online application form allows you to make two program choices for a single application fee. You may choose two different Science program groups, or choose one Science group and a program from another faculty. Applicants are encouraged to use both choices, putting their preferred choice first. Both choices will be considered and you will receive an admission decision on both. If you wish to apply for more than two programs, you will need to submit another application and pay an additional application fee.

1.2 Applying to the Bachelor of Arts & Science degree

The B.A. & Sc. degree, jointly offered through the Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Science, is designed for students who have clearly-defined interests in both Arts and Science. While the degree provides a broad education that includes in-depth study of disciplines in both Faculties, the number of elective courses a student can take is limited. Students entering the B.A. & Sc. program therefore must know in precisely which disciplines they wish to focus. Note that students who intend to pursue graduate studies in science or to attend medical school may have to complete additional courses as electives or beyond the basic degree requirements.

1.3 Applying to the Bachelor of Arts degree

There are four units within the Faculty of Science that offer B.A. degrees through the Faculty of Arts as well as B.Sc. degrees through the Faculty of Science. They are the School of Computer Science, the Department of Geography, the Department of Mathematics & Statistics, and the Department of Psychology.

One reason to consider a B.A. over a B.Sc. is if you have the prerequisites for computer science, geography, mathematics and statistics, or psychology, but do not have all the basic science prerequisites needed for admission to a B.Sc. In the case of computer science, bear in mind that computer science programs have a strong mathematics component regardless of whether you choose the B.A. or B.Sc. stream.

You might also choose to apply for admission to a Bachelor of Arts because you wish to pursue a particular program combination only available in a B.A. – e.g. Joint Honours in English and Mathematics.

1.4 Second Bachelor degree

Information on how to apply to either the B.Sc. or the B.A. & Sc. as a second bachelor degree after the completion of a first bachelor degree can be found on the Admissions website.

For information on taking a B.Sc. or B.A. & Sc. as a second degree concurrently with a first degree, please contact pete.barry [at] mcgill.ca (Pete Barry), Chief Academic Adviser in Science.

3. Your first year

Help line for newly admitted Science and Arts & Science students
514-398-5442
Monday to Friday, 9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

The courses you do in your first year as a Science or Arts & Science student at McGill will depend on what you did before you arrived.

Some students will spend their first year completing a number of basic courses known as the freshman program. When you start at this level, you will usually need a minimum of four years to complete your degree.

Other students may receive an exemption from some or all of the required freshman courses, which may allow them to complete their degree in as little as three years.

Do any of the following categories apply to you?

Students admitted with a Quebec CEGEP diploma

If you have a D.E.C. in Science or in Integrated Arts and Science, you will be granted 30 credits of advance standing, equivalent to completing the freshman requirements.

If you have a D.E.C. in another field, you may still have some freshman requirements to complete.

In either case, students in this category can proceed directly into a major and will be in a position to complete their degree in three years.

Students admitted with a secondary school qualification from outside Quebec

If you have a Canadian or US high school diploma, an International, French or European Baccalaureate, a GCE A Level, or some other pre-university educational qualification, you may be eligible for advanced standing, exempting you from some of the freshman requirements.

If you are granted sufficient advance standing, you will be able to declare your major immediately. If not, you will need to complete your outstanding freshman requirements first. Students in this category are likely to need at least four years to complete their degree.

Students in this category must submit a course approval form to the Science Office for Undergraduate Student Advising (SOUSA) to find out whether they have any outstanding freshman requirements to complete.

Students who have already completed some university study

If you have completed previous university studies, you may be eligible for transfer credits. This is in addition to any advance standing you may be eligible for based on your secondary-level studies. Together, transfer credits and advance standing may exempt you from some or all of the freshman requirements.

Students in this category must submit a course approval form  (available as of June 1st) to the Science Office for Undergraduate Student Advising (SOUSA) to find out whether they have any outstanding freshman requirements to complete.

Any remaining transfer credits beyond the freshman courses from your previous university studies will appear on your Minerva transcript as TRNS XXX (generic transfer credits) and are dealt with by the Faculty of Science. A Registrar’s Hold may be placed on your record until you have completed the process of having these credits evaluated, see below for details.

It is important to note that courses previously taken prior to attending McGill may count as program requirements and must be evaluated for course equivalency. Make sure that you do not register for a course at McGill for which you have an exemption as you will not receive credit if you take the same course a second time.

In order to determine course equivalency follow the steps listed below.

  • Email mary.gauthier [at] mcgill.ca (Mary Gauthier), with a copy of your unofficial transcript to start the process.
  • All courses taken prior to coming to McGill, for which you have not already received advanced standing credits from Admissions, must be approved using the Course Equivalency System.
  • Search the Course Equivalency System to determine if the course you have to taken has already been approved. You may want to use the “External” course number and then “Country” or “Institution” to determine if the course has already been approved. Make sure you also tick off “Include Expired Decisions”. The course may have already been approved, but might be expired, which means you will have to request a “Reassessment”. (See FAQs).
  • If the course appears on the database, email Mary, providing the following information: Course number at host university and Approved McGill Equivalency
  • If the course is not on the course database, then you must login (using your McGill email address and password) and “Submit a Request”. For further information on using the system, please go to Frequently asked questions and Course syllabus checklist
  • In addition to the required list of syllabus information, detailed on the Course Syllabus Checklist, you must also ensure that the syllabus contains the following information:

Institution's name
Course number
Course description (content)
Date of course/syllabus (year/term)

  • Submit your request(s).

Once your courses have been officially approved on the course database, you must send a follow up email to Mary with the following information: Course number at host university and Approved McGill equivalency.

You must also add all courses to the “Minerva Transfer Credit Assessment Form”. You can only access the form as of September 2nd. To access this form go to: Minerva > Student Records Administration Menu > Exchange/Study Away Menu > Transfer Credit Assessment. Only courses that appear on the Course Equivalency System can be added to the Transfer Credit Assessment Form. For further information, please refer to the Help Field on Minerva.

Once all of your courses have been evaluated, your Minerva transcript will be updated to reflect the McGill course equivalencies.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact mary.gauthier [at] mcgill.ca (Mary Gauthier).

Non-degree students

Exchange students, visiting students and special students are not required to follow a specific McGill program.

Students in this category need to work closely with their student adviser to find the best courses to meet their needs.


3.1 Course approval forms

The B.Sc. course approval form for Fall 2020 and Winter 2021 is now closed. Please check your Minerva advising transcript for the name of your assigned SOUSA advisor and contact them directly if you have questions about course selection. You can see their contact info and advising schedule here. You do not need to see an advisor before registering for courses, but you should check with your advisor afterwards.

All newly admitted degree students, except those with a Quebec CEGEP diploma, must complete a course approval form. The information you provide will allow your academic adviser to tell you where you stand in relation to the freshman program requirements.  The course approval form will be available as of June 1st.

Inform yourself: June - August

Find out if you are eligible for advanced standing

Newly admitted students may receive advanced standing for university work completed elsewhere, or in another faculty at McGill, or for results in International Baccalaureate, French Baccalaureate, Advanced Levels, Advanced Placement tests or the Diploma in Collegial Studies.

It is essential that you know if you will be granted credit and course exemption for work completed elsewhere as you will not be given additional credit towards your degree for any McGill course where the content overlaps substantially with any other course for which you have already received credit, such as for advanced standing results.

For information about advanced standing credits as a result of the tests mentioned above, please refer to the following: advanced standing and Science placement examinations.

If you have completed university studies elsewhere, please ensure that you include this information in the online freshman course approval form (available in early June), which you will be submitting to your Faculty adviser, as listed farther below. Your adviser will be able to inform you about possible course equivalences and exemptions from your freshman program requirements.

Get advice: June 1 - September 15

For more serious issues you can arrange an individual appointment with your adviser. Appointments are done by email with your adviser. If you have a simple question, you can email your adviser. When emailing your adviser, please include your name and student number in the subject line and use your McGill email. Be aware during busy periods (like the beginning of term) your email may not be answered in a timely fashion.

Other sources of information

You can obtain information on a broad range of topics from other offices at McGill by following the links below. Their email links are also provided in case you have questions after having read the information.

› Campus Life & Engagement's First-Year Website
› Service Point
› Residences
› Student Services

3.2.2 Selecting courses

As a freshman program student you will be using the web to have your course selection approved by a Faculty adviser and will not be assigned to a departmental program adviser during your first year at McGill. However, you are encouraged to consult departmental advisers about specific academic information pertaining to prerequisites, courses and departmental programs. Their advice will enable you to have a better understanding of the departmental programs you may choose. Students should also refer to the following program-specific advice for their degree:

› B.Sc. program-specific advice
› B.A. & Sc. program-specific advice

Advanced standing

Advanced standing of up to 30 credits may be granted to students who obtain satisfactory results in International Baccalaureate, French Baccalaureate, Advanced Levels, and Advanced Placement results. If you expect to receive credit and exemption from one or more of the basic science courses, you should not register for those courses, as you will not receive credit twice for the same material. Please consult the admissions information about course equivalences for further details.

Course load

A normal course load is 5 courses each term (total of 10 courses per year) or 30 credits for the year; however, you may wish to start at a slower pace and register for 4 courses in your first term. Because some of the basic science courses are worth four credits, four science freshman courses per term may total 30 credits for the year; consequently, you may wish to take only 4 courses in order to avoid being overloaded. If this is the first time you are studying in English, we strongly recommend that you take only 4 courses during your first term.

Courses administered by faculties outside of Arts and Science

B.Sc. students

You may choose courses outside the Faculties of Arts and of Science as elective credits, up to a maximum of 6 credits during the freshman year (3 credits per term). Please consult restricted courses outside the Faculty of Science and your Faculty adviser in order to determine which courses are permitted for credit.

B.A. & Sc. students

You may choose courses outside the Faculties of Arts and of Science as elective credits. Please consult eCalendar section on Courses outside the Faculties of Arts and of Science and your adviser in order to determine which courses are permitted for credit. These courses may not be used as Arts elective courses.

Constructing a class schedule

When you are selecting your courses, you must make sure that you do not register for courses that overlap in time. There is a 10-minute break between classes to allow you to change rooms and buildings, so you can select courses that are back-to-back without causing problems.

If you plan to register for a multi-term course that spans both the Fall and the Winter terms, such as a language course, make sure that you register in the same section for both terms.

Postponing one of your freshman courses

If it is necessary to postpone one of your freshman courses, depending on your intended program, it may be possible to take the course at McGill during the summer session. Also, it may be helpful to know that you are permitted to take summer courses at another university and have the credits and exemption(s) transferred to your McGill degree. Please consult Study Away for more information regarding study away permission/approval for summer courses and the course equivalency system for more information regarding exemptions from McGill courses.

Biology courses

Biological Sciences

It is recommended that you complete both BIOL 111 Principles:Organismal Biology and BIOL 112 Cell and Molecular Biology in your freshman year. However, the crucial course is BIOL 112, as it is the prerequisite for BIOL 200 Molecular Biology , the core course for all biological science departmental programs. It is strongly recommended that you complete CHEM 110 General Chemistry 1 before attempting BIOL 112. BIOL 111 is a prerequisite for BIOL 206 Methods in Biology and BIOL 215 Intro to Ecology and Evolution , core courses in the Biology program. If you plan to pursue the Major Concentration in Biomedical Sciences you do not need to take BIOL 111.

Physical Sciences

If you intend to pursue a departmental program in the physical sciences you do not need to take BIOL 111 or BIOL 112.

Psychology

If you plan to pursue a program in psychology, you should complete BIOL 112 Cell and Molecular Biology and PSYC 100 Introduction to Psychology in your freshman year. As our psychology program is quite science oriented, knowledge of the concepts covered in BIOL 112 will help you in subsequent psychology courses.

Chemistry Courses

Biological Sciences

It is recommended that you complete both CHEM 110 General Chemistry 1 and CHEM 120 General Chemistry 2 in your freshman year because these courses are prerequisites for CHEM 212 Intro Organic Chemistry 1 . CHEM 212 is a corequisite for BIOL 200 Molecular Biology , which is a prerequisite for higher level biology courses.

Physical Sciences

If you intend to pursue a departmental program in the physical sciences you must take CHEM 110 General Chemistry 1 and CHEM 120 General Chemistry 2 . These courses are prerequisites for higher level courses in the physical sciences.

Mathematics courses - Calculus

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics currently offers 3 calculus streams, one for students with no previous background in calculus and two for students with a high school background in calculus: the regular stream and the accelerated stream.

MATH 139 Calculus 1 with Precalculus (4 cr)
and
MATH 141 Calculus 2 (4 cr)

 
For students with no high school calculus or who do not have a full course of high school calculus (3 hours of lectures and a 2-hour compulsory tutorial).
 
MATH 140 Calculus 1 (3 cr)
and
MATH 141 Calculus 2 (4 cr)
For students with a full course of high school calculus (MATH 140 has 3 hours of lectures and a 1-hour compulsory tutorial; MATH 141 has 3 hours of lectures and a 2-hour compulsory tutorial).
MATH 150 Calculus A (4 cr)
and
MATH 151 Calculus B (4 cr)
For students with a full course of high school calculus and who enjoyed it and did well in all their high school science courses (minimum of A- in high school calculus) (3 hours of lectures and a 2-hour compulsory tutorial).

Both the MATH 139 and 141 and the MATH 140 and 141 streams cover Calculus I and Calculus II, whereas the MATH 150 and 151 stream covers Calculus I, II and III (this stream is a possible option for students planning to enter a program for which Calculus III [MATH 222] is compulsory). The MATH 139 and MATH 141 stream or the MATH 140 and MATH 141 stream are both suitable prerequisites for Calculus III.

Advanced Standing: If you have been granted advanced standing (credit and exemption) for Calculus I or Alpha (either MATH 139 or 140), you have the option of registering for MATH 141 in either the fall or winter term. You may also choose the MATH 150 and 151 stream.

Physics Courses

There are two streams of physics:

PHYS 101 Intro Physics - Mechanics
and
PHYS 102 Intro Physics-Electromagnetism
For students with no high school physics or who are weak in physics. This stream is adequate preparation for the biological science programs but not for the physical science programs.
PHYS 131 Mechanics and Waves
and
PHYS 142 Electromagnetism & Optics
For students with high school physics and a solid background in mathematics. Note that calculus is required as a corequisite. This stream provides very good preparation for the biological or physical sciences programs.

Physical Sciences

The normal physics requirement for students who intend to pursue a program in the physical sciences is PHYS 131 and PHYS 142; you must complete this requirement in your freshman year. These physics courses require a solid background in high school mathematics and physics.

Biological Sciences

If you intend to pursue a Major Concentration in Biology or a Major Concentration in Biomedical Sciences, you should complete PHYS 101 or 131 and 102 or 142 in your freshman year. Knowledge of these courses will facilitate your understanding of the material in the U1 courses in this program, as well as being prerequisites for future course requirements.

Geography students have the option of completing either stream of physics.

Students with an exemption for PHYS 101 and 102 who intend to follow a physical science program may take PHYS 142 for credit.

Deficient in High School Physics or Mathematics and Intending to Pursue a Program in the Physical Sciences

If you are concerned about your ability to handle PHYS 131 in your first term, you have two choices:

  1. You may initially register in PHYS 101 in your freshman year. At the end of the first term, you may request permission from the Director of Advising Services, Science to register in PHYS 142 in the second term. In order to obtain permission for this change, you should have completed the fall term with strong grades in physics and in your other subjects.
  2. You may prefer to complete PHYS 101 and PHYS 102 during your freshman year. You will then need to consult with your future physical science department to determine whether or not you will be admitted to their program. Their decision will depend on your grades in physics and in your other courses.

Arts introductory courses (B.A. & Sc. students)

In your freshman year, you are required to complete at least three Arts courses chosen from two of the following three categories: Social Sciences, Humanities, and Languages. A maximum of two courses may be selected from one category, and no more than two courses from any one department. These courses are selected from the B.A. & Sc. freshman Program list of approved courses. Courses outside the Faculties of Arts and of Science are not used towards this requirement.

3.2.3 B.Sc. freshman program requirements

Students normally complete 30 credits which must include at least seven courses from the eCalendar's list of approved freshman Science courses:

Leaving open the option to apply for medical school

Students who wish to leave open the option of applying to medical school should be aware that they can select any of the Science majors (not just the biological or life science ones). Medical schools are looking for a diverse applicant pool and all of the Science programs provide ample room to include medical school prerequisite courses (see https://www.mcgill.ca/science/undergraduate/medical). Students perform best when they select a major in which they are interested and engaged. Choosing the appropriate major can also leave many options open, not just medical school.

Students who wish to leave open the option of applying to medical school at the end of the undergraduate studies should review the prerequisite courses required for medical schools at which they may apply to ensure that they complete all of the required basic science courses during their undergraduate degree studies. However, not all such courses need to be completed in the freshman year. Students are encouraged to select the freshman courses that best prepare them for their possible areas of study.

In addition, students should be aware of other constraints on their programs imposed by medical school admissions. For example, some medical schools will not allow courses to be taken under the S/U option, and some medical schools require a full course load. Medical schools vary in their prerequisite requirements but in general it is recommended that interested students complete both one full year of biology and one full year of chemistry during their freshman year. Specific admission requirements for all Canadian medical schools can be found at the Association of Faculties of Medicine of Canada hompage under Publications.

* Choosing your calculus Courses

  • students with no previous knowledge of Calculus should take MATH 139 Calculus 1 with Precalculus , followed by MATH 141 Calculus 2 .
  • students with high school calculus take either the sequence MATH 140 Calculus 1 / MATH 141 Calculus 2 or the sequence MATH 150 Calculus A / MATH 151 Calculus B . The MATH 150/MATH 151 sequence covers the material of (and gives equivalence for) MATH 140, MATH 141 and MATH 222 Calculus 3 and is more challenging than the standard MATH 140/MATH 141 sequence.

** Choosing your physics courses

  • Students who want to take a physical science (Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences, Chemistry, Earth Systems Science, Earth and Planetary Sciences or Physics) or who want to keep their options open should take the sequence PHYS 131 Mechanics and Waves / PHYS 142 Electromagnetism & Optics . Students in the biological sciences can take PHYS 131/PHYS 142, but may prefer to take the sequence PHYS 101 Intro Physics - Mechanics / PHYS 102 Intro Physics-Electromagnetism , which covers the same material but assumes less mathematical background.

3.2.3.2 Suggested elective courses for B.Sc. freshman students

Freshman science students may choose electives from the courses listed below, once the required and complementary courses have been selected as part of the B.Sc. freshman program.

Note: Courses that are not being offered in the current year are not listed in Class Schedule on Minerva. Also, you should consult timetable information via Minerva for changes in course offerings or times and for the locations of the courses. Reminder: all courses have limited enrolment.

Math and science courses

Note: Some of the courses listed below are not suitable in the first term as they require university level prerequisites. Please check the Calendar course entries for further information about appropriate background, or the program adviser (from specific departments), before registering.

Note: Some of the courses below are also listed under the list of approved freshman Science courses for the B.Sc. freshman program.

Note: Science courses numbered 18X (e.g. EPSC 182) are considered general interest courses, and are not part of any program. These courses have no prerequisites.

Note: First Year Seminar courses (CHEM 199, COMP 199, EPSC 199, GEOG 199, PSYT 199) are designed to provide a closer interaction with professors and better working relations with peers than is available in large introductory courses. These seminars endeavour to teach the latest scholarly developments and expose participants to advanced research methods. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. The maximum number of students in any seminar is 25, although some are limited to even fewer than that.
