Program Notes


  1. Registration in an Honours Life Sciences program does not guarantee access to all courses. Some courses have program restrictions. Students are advised to check prerequisites carefully.
  2. Students interested in completing a thesis or independent study course should consider completing LIFESCI 3RP3  in Level III.
  3. Students interested in graduate school may wish to consider completion of a thesis or independent study course (See LIFESCI 4A03 , 4B09 A/B S , 4C12 A/B S , 4D15 A/B S ). 
  4. LIFESCI 2G03  does not substitute for BIOLOGY 2C03  or MOLBIOL 2C03  for prerequisite purposes.
  5. This program does not have a Co-op option.
  6. Course planning is extremely important. Students must review and consider the requisites on Level II, III and IV courses when enrolling in the previous Levels.
  7. Students in the Honours Life Sciences - Origins of Disease Specialization are excluded from the pre-registration ballot process as LIFESCI 4CM3  is a program requirement and registration is guaranteed.
  8. Students should complete LIFESCI 2BP3  prior to registration in LIFESCI 3M03 .
  9. SUSTAIN 3SS3  is only offered in the Spring Term.
  10. Students who entered the program prior to September 2022, can use MOLBIOL 3B03  to satisfy the LIFESCI 3M03  requirement.
