Introduction

The Specializations, through Majors and Minors, help build disciplinary knowledge and appreciate the excitement of a subject and its applications. Emphasis will be on active and participative learning. Discussions, research projects and field visits are an important part of the curriculum.

We help you specialize but in a flexible way-

  • Students are required to choose one Major area of disciplinary study.
  • In addition to this, students are required to select a disciplinary or interdisciplinary Minor or instead, study an interesting mix of courses from several disciplines
  • The University does not guarantee that every student will be able to register for a particular Minor of his or her choice. We will help students choose Minors based on our evaluation of the student’s interests, academic needs and available courses. Students can also choose to distribute the credits across multiple courses without declaring a Minor.

All students will obtain 48 credits from specializations. In addition, students (if they meet the norms) can enroll for an Honours pathway. Successful completion of the Honours pathway requires obtaining an additional 12 credits including 6 credits from work that leads to a thesis or research project.

SCIENCES

The Specialization in Sciences help build disciplinary knowledge and appreciate the excitement of a subject and its applications. Emphasis will be on active and participative learning. Discussions, research projects and field visits are an important part of the curriculum. Students are required to choose Life Sciences or the Physical Sciences for the Science Specialization.

Life Sciences – with courses in Biology, Physics and Chemistry

OR

Physical Sciences – with courses in Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry

All students will obtain 50 credits from the Science Specialization.

EDUCATION

For the education major, students would develop:

  • Educational judgement through perspective courses
  • Skills to teach effectively through courses in curriculum and pedagogy
  • A thorough grounding in school practice.

With our access to a vast network of schools, students would get rigorous and grounded practical experiences helping them become expert Science Educators.

All students will obtain 52 credits from the Education specialization.
