Science – Advanced Entry for Pharmaceutical and Food Science Technology graduates

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs (by degree)

General information

The Bachelor of Science (Honours) program enables students entering this pathway to receive 60 credits hours in transfer credits for their previous academic work, and will be able to complete the pathway in four terms of study. This pathway is based on the Durham College three-year Pharmaceutical and Food Science Technology diploma program, but other colleges with similar programs may also be eligible.

Admission requirements

Graduates from the Durham College three-year Pharmaceutical and Food Science Technology diploma program with an overall B average (73% average) or better, will be considered for admission to the BSc (Hons) program. Admission to the pathway is competitive based on the cumulative GPA in the diploma program. The minimum cumulative GPA for entry into the pathway could be higher on a year to year basis depending upon the demand for the pathway and the availability of space in the pathway. Once admitted to the pathway students must follow all the UOIT academic and non-academic regulations. Students approved for admission to this pathway program are accepted into a BSc (Hons) program with no specific major or concentration. Students do not have the option to transfer into other programs/concentrations.      

Degree requirements

The requirements for the degree completion program are detailed in the following program map.

Year 1

Year 2

Winter semester (15 credit hours)

*Elective and breadth requirements:

Students must complete 6 elective credit hours. Of these 6 credit hours, at least 3 credit hours must be a course offered outside the Faculty of Science (non-science/liberal studies elective).  The remaining 3 elective credit hours must be in a general elective (offered by the Faculty of Science or outside the Faculty of Science). Students are recommended to take either BIOL 2060U  or BIOL 2020U  as their general elective, in order to increase the number of third and fourth year science electives open to them. 

**Third and fourth year Science elective requirements:

Students must complete 18 elective credit hours in courses offered by the Faculty of Science, at the third- and fourth-year level. At least 6 of these credit hours must be at the fourth-year level. Course choices made in previous semesters may limit which courses can be taken. Students are recommended to consult with their academic advisor to determine an academic plan for their two years of study.
