Bachelor of Science
Force, motion, light, sound, electricity, magnetism and the structure of matter lie at the heart of natural sciences and technology. You will benefit from exposure to cuttingedge research in renewable energy, semiconductor devices, microelectronics, nanotechnology, materials science, biophysics, computational physics and astrophysics.
Pursue your studies through the Honours Physics Program, or choose to specialize in one of the following areas:
You will explore the current state of knowledge in astrophysics, examine new and emerging theories, and utilize modern techniques to analyze and solve problems in astronomy and astrophysics. Students in the Astrophysics specialization develop extensive knowledge in physics and math, as well as strong analytical and computational skills. This specialization will prepare you for graduate work and a wide variety of career options in astronomy and physics.
Energy and Environmental Physics
This specialization emphasizes alternative and conventional energy. You will learn the scientific principles underlying the development of novel and economical means of generating and harvesting energy, while simultaneously minimizing the environmental impact.
Science and Management
If you are interested in managerial and leadership roles, consider applying for the five-year Bachelor of Science and Management (Honours) program in your upper years of study. Graduates gain a solid foundation in the key functional areas of business and management, including finance, accounting, operations, project management and marketing.
There is a wealth of opportunities for science graduates in industry, government, and in areas of applied science. The combination of a science degree and business and management education will give an added advantage to graduates in establishing careers within these practical fields.
Current Ontario secondary school students must complete the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) with six 4U or 4M credits including English (ENG4U), Advanced Functions (MHF4U), and two of Biology (SBI4U), Calculus and Vectors (MCV4U), Chemistry (SCH4U) or Physics (SPH4U). In addition, a combined minimum 70 per cent average in prerequisite math and science courses is required. It is recommended that all four of MCV4U, SBI4U, SCH4U and SPH4U be taken.
Note: Admission is competitive. The specific average or standing required for admission varies from year to year. Students are selected by taking into consideration a wide range of criteria including school marks, distribution of subjects taken, and performance in subjects relevant to the academic program. Possession of the minimum requirements does not guarantee acceptance. Preference will be given to applicants with the best qualifications.
Pursue career and advanced education opportunities in a variety of areas including:
Energy specialist or consultant
Energy supply industry
Governmental agencies (research laboratory or Department of National Defence)
Research and development
Secondary school teaching (through Concurrent Education)
