Concurrent BCS/BSC Degree Program

Most scientific careers now require a thorough background in computing. Many careers in the computing field require primary knowledge in a scientific application area. The Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Computer Science offer students a program in which to pursue a science major and a complete computer science education. Students may enroll in a concurrent degree program in which at the end of 5 years of study a student will graduate with both a BSc with a major in Biology, Chemistry, Geology, Mathematics, or Physics, and a BCS. Selection of a Majors/Honours program in CS or participation in the Co-op program will lengthen the student's program. The program is designed so that if a student decides to opt for BCS alone, the adjustments can be easily made. Students in the concurrent degree program are able to count many of their courses toward the requirements of both degrees so it is important to select courses carefully from the outset, in consultation with an advisor.

Admission requirements:

Students must satisfy the admission requirements for both BCS and BSc as given in Section B.

Course Selections

While the first and second years given below are typical, the third, fourth and fifth year will depend on the CS and Science degree programs chosen (Major, Honours, etc.)
