Prior to registration, Level I students must review the admission requirements of the Level II programs they are considering. Courses must be selected carefully to meet the admission requirements for entry to Level II of a specific program. For details of the various admission requirements see Faculty of Science program descriptions in this section of the Calendar. Students are also encouraged to review the McMaster Academic Planner (MAP) at www.mapsci.ca. Additionally, in late June and early July, Academic Advisors from the Office of the Associate Dean of Science (Academic) are readily available to provide Level I students with academic advice and registration assistance. To maximize the selection of Level II programs from the disciplines of Chemical and Physical Sciences, students should complete the courses recommended below.
