Course selection
If you have not decided which program to pursue, take a selection of
courses from different areas; when you choose your program, nonrequired courses will count as electives. The University strongly
recommends that students in Year One DO NOT take 300- or 400-level
courses, as low grades will impact your graduating GPA.
Faculty of Science students should also refer to the following additional
information pages:
• Year One and Year Two Course Requirements – Major
Programs in the Faculty of Science which lists common
requirements across programs;
• Pre- and Corequisites for Year One and Year Two Courses –
Major Programs in the Faculty of Science which lists pre- and
co-requisites, as well as laboratory and tutorial information.
Prerequisites
Refer to the course descriptions in the Academic Calendar to ensure
that you are taking appropriate prerequisites each year for the courses
you plan to take in the following year. Any prerequisites of note are
listed under each year below.
Year One
Program Notes: Students with credit for BIOL 190A do not need to
take BIOL 186; students with BIOL 190B do not need to take BIOL 184.
Students may choose to do the 4.5 units of science electives in any
year(s), although 3 units are included in Years Three and Four on this
worksheet (see Year Two below for courses which satisfy this
requirement).
Registration Notes: Check the course descriptions for the other
courses you plan to take this year to make sure you register for any
required labs or tutorials. You must register in BOTH terms for year-long
courses (normally 3 units).
Year Two
If you are not registered in the Faculty of Science, but have
completed 9 units of science courses which include two of MATH
100, 101, 102, 151, you can submit a Re-registration form to
Records Services in the University Centre to change your Faculty to
Science.
Program Notes: Science electives can be at any level, chosen from
Astronomy (ASTR), Biochemistry (BIOC), Chemistry (CHEM),
Computer Science (CSC), Earth and Ocean Sciences (EOS),
Mathematics (MATH), Medical Sciences (MEDS), Microbiology
(MICR), Physics (PHYS), Software Engineering (SENG) and
Statistics (STAT). One of EOS 350, 360, 370 may be counted as a
science elective. Additional Biology (BIOL) or Marine Sciences
(MRNE) courses will NOT count towards this requirement.
Registration Notes: Check the course descriptions for the other
courses you plan to take this year to make sure you register for any
required labs or tutorials.
Suggested Electives: Additional Statistics courses are
recommended.
Year Three
Program Notes: BIOL 334, 351 and 359 will count ONLY as
electives in Biology programs.
Prerequisites: BIOC 299 is a prerequisite for some 300-level
Biology courses.
Year Four
Applying for Graduation: In your last year of study, you must
submit an application for graduation to Records Services. For
application deadlines and convocation details, see
www.uvic.ca/graduation.
If your degree requirements are complete, but you have not yet
graduated, you may request a Degree Completion Letter from the
Registrar’s Office.
Graduation Requirements: See How to Use the Program Planning
Worksheets for more information.
Declaring a Program: Most students can officially declare a program
once they have completed 12.0 units of coursework. See How to Use
the Program Planning Worksheets for more information.
