Find the program that's right for you
All science fields offer majors (normal four-year programs), honours (special four-year programs with individual research projects, report and presentation), or minors (a concentration of elective coursework along with another major or honors). Some also offer double majors (complete the coursework for two majors or honours programs) and combined majors (a mix of two majors programs).
While each department's website has information about their programs, the University Calendar is the authoritative source.

Biochemistry merges biology and chemistry. It covers some of the most exciting areas of the life sciences.
Modern biochemical research includes:
- structural biology
- signal transduction
- gene expression and development
- metabolic diseases
- molecular evolution
Microbiology spans all of biology. It provides the foundation for molecular biology and biotechnology. Microorganisms are the cause of many human diseases. A microbiology program is a popular choice for students with interests in molecular biology, drug discovery, medicine, or biotechnology.
Biology is the study of living organisms, including their form, function and ecological relationships. It's subdivided into many fields like ecology, marine biology, molecular biology, plant biology, etc.
Earth, ocean, and climate scientists study the interactions between solid earth, oceans, atmosphere and life.
They study how the earth's system and climate have evolved through deep time into the present day, and make predictions about its future.
Mathematics is the study of quantity, space and arrangement, often in the form of patterns.
Statistics is the science of analyzing numerical data and examines how to infer the distribution of populations from samples.
Astronomy explores stars, galaxies and the universe by using physical laws and computational tools to interpret observations. Astronomers have shaped our understanding of our relationship to the universe since ancient times.
Physics tries to understand what the world is made of and how the parts interact, both at the level of fundamental particles and in macroscopic systems. Physicists have profoundly influenced culture and technology and continue to do so.
