- You cannot Major in both Computer Science and Information Technology.
- Biology, Biochemistry, Ecology and Microbiology Majors may not be combined; students wishing to pursue such Double Majors must instead register for the Biological Sciences Double Major. Only the Biology or Biochemistry Major may be combined with the Chemistry Major. Only the Biology or Ecology Major may be combined with the Environmental Science (formerly Earth Science) Minor. Students wishing to combine a Biology, Biochemistry, Ecology or Microbiology Major with a Major of another discipline must seek the approval of the Dean and are advised that timetable clashes of courses may make it impossible to complete such degrees in the minimum 3 year period.
Minors are available in all of the subjects listed above in addition to Statistics, Environmental Science and Medical Electronics.
You can put together almost any combination of Majors and Minors from within the Faculty - degree options. However, note that within the Biological Sciences, the following restrictions apply
Only the Biology or Ecology Major may be combined with the Environmental Science (formerly Earth Science) Minor.
You must take a Major in the Faculty but, with the permission of the Dean, you may combine this with another Major or a Minor from The Faculty of Social Sciences and the Faculty of Humanities. Currently, only a limited number of combinations are possible.
