Why a science degree?

Sometimes the simple answers just won’t do. Your healthy sense of curiosity is too strong to ignore; you’ve got to get to the heart of the issue. You have the patience to hypothesize and experiment until you have found the answer to your question. For you, the journey truly is half the fun.

You can prepare for a career in chemistry, computing science, cell biology, environmental science and many other specializations. Bachelor of Science students develop research skills, analytical skills, technical skills and work ethics that make them valuable commodities in the labour market.

The Bachelor of Science degree at MacEwan University can also be a direct route to a professional program, with its pre-professional streams leading towards degrees in dental hygiene, dentistry, medical laboratory science, medicine, optometry, pharmacy and veterinary medicine.

What will I study?

The Bachelor of Science degree is comprised of 120 credits of coursework with 6 majors: biological sciences, computer science, mathematics, mathematical sciences (in which students focus on two of mathematics, statistics or computer science), physical sciences (in which students focus on two of physics, chemistry or earth and atmospheric sciences) and psychology.

Choose your minor from many disciplines within the Faculty of Arts and Science as well as two out-of-faculty minors.
