B.A. & Sc. Freshman/Foundation Year Program

B.A. & Sc. Freshman/Foundation Year Program

Students who need to complete 97–120 credits to fulfil their degree requirements are admitted to the Freshman/Foundation Year Program. Students with specific career goals should consult an academic advisor about their choice of program within the B.A. & Sc. However, students intending to pursue further studies following the B.A. & Sc. should refer to the admission requirements of particular programs for the appropriate prerequisite courses.

In particular, students should note the following:

  • The minimum Freshman/Foundation Year science requirements in the B.A. & Sc. may not satisfy the introductory science requirements of all medical/dental schools;
  • The Major Concentration in Psychology may not provide a sufficiently focused background for admission to many graduate programs in psychology;
  • The Major Concentration in Chemistry is not certified by the Ordre des Chimistes du Québec. Students interested in pursuing a career in chemistry in Quebec are advised to take an appropriate B.Sc. program in chemistry.

Refer to the B.A. & Sc. Freshman/Foundation Year Program page for further details.
