General Arts and Science – Science and Engineering Preparation UOIT Transfer

Program Description

This program is designed for individuals interested in pursuing various science and engineering programs at UOIT.

This program offers an opportunity to develop and refine academic skills (for science, mathematics and communication that is necessary for admission) and ultimately provide foundational knowledge needed to ensure success in subsequent academic studies. Some General Arts and Science courses are also transferable to other post-secondary programs.

This program is three semesters in length and is designed to reinforce key academic skills while providing a broad range of post-secondary courses designed to specifically support academic and career goals. Students in this stream are required to complete six (three-credit) courses per semester over three semesters (18 courses in total). These include five core (or mandatory) courses including Communications (two), Computers (one), Advanced Math (one) and Preparing for Academic Success (one). In addition, thirteen non-core courses are also taken including Advanced Math (four), Physics (three), Biology (two) and Chemistry (two) and general education elective courses (two). While the course Issues and Ethics in Science is highly recommended, the elective courses can be drawn from a wide array of courses in social sciences and liberal arts.

Graduates of the General Arts and Science program may qualify for admission to and/or advanced standing to pursue additional college or university studies.

PLEASE NOTE:

  1. It is each student’s responsibility to ensure that the courses he or she is registered in are appropriate for the stated admission requirements for future program choices.
  2. Successful completion of the GASZ certificate does not guarantee admission into UOIT or other post-secondary programs.
  3. Each educational institution determines its own admission requirements. If you plan to attend any university other than UOIT or a college, please ensure that courses taken meet its admission requirements.
