Preparation for Graduate School
Any choice of undergraduate degree and program constrains options for graduate school. The B.A. & Sc. provides good preparation for graduate degrees in integrated disciplines such as Cognitive or Environmental Science as well as in the new Sustainability, Science and Society program. Depending on the Arts or Science specific program you want to enter in graduate school, the B.A. & Sc. may or may not be adequate preparation. If you intend to pursue an Arts or Science specific program at the graduate level, you should consult academic advisers in that discipline at McGill and at universities where you intend to apply in order to find out whether the B.A. & Sc. will prepare you adequately. If you are considering continuing on in a specific Science graduate program, you should examine the difference between the preparation provided by the 36-credit major concentrations in the B.A. & Sc. program versus the significantly more specialized major and honours programs offered in the B.Sc. programs.
