The Faculties of Science and Education offer a combined degrees program that is more highly structured than the BSc followed by a BEd After Degree (a six-year route). It provides less flexibility in course choice and scheduling than taking the degrees sequentially, because it is designed to meet the minimum requirements of both degrees in five years. In addition, interim Alberta teacher certification requirements are met within this time frame.
Students will select a major and minor from the following choices: (1) Biological Sciences, (2) Mathematical Sciences, (3) Physical Sciences.
Students apply to the Faculty of Science for admission to the Combined Degrees Program and spend the first two years of the five-year program registered in the Faculty of Science.
