NOTE 1: Both the BIOL 1105, BIOL 1205, BIOL 1017, PSYC 1003, PSYC 1004 combination and GEOL 1044, GEOL 1074 must be completed before graduation. Course selection in the first year should be done in a manner which allows progression to the two areas of concentration planned for the upper years.
For graduation, students will be listed in three divisions as for other BSc students, but a student achieving a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or better will graduate with distinction.
NOTE 2: The General Science options offered on the two campuses differ from one another. The regulations governing the General Science option offered at UNBF are given in Section G.
NOTE 3: Courses from other institutions will be considered for credit toward this program, pending approval by the Department of Physical Sciences. This affords the students an opportunity to participate in "study abroad" or pursue study in a topic area that is currently not available on the Saint John campus.
