The BASc is designed for intellectually ambitious students who want to take control of their learning and develop a broad set of scholarly skills in order to become leaders across a diverse range of fields to tackle important global challenges.

Students will gain social intelligence, and creative problem-solving and analytical skills, and be aware of ethical responsibility. They will also learn how to intersect and integrate disciplines through case studies, capstone experiences, and learn from thought leaders, and movers and shakers.

Two pathways, three faculties, multiple options

Students take three disciplinary courses from all three faculties and elective courses within two pathways:
1. Cultures/Societies and
2. Physical World/Biological/Human Sciences

Students also take five interdisciplinary courses, co-designed and co-taught by teachers from the three faculties.

Free electives or second major

Students can pursue any combination of subjects or a second major of their choice (e.g., physics, history, psychology, political studies, marketing or management).

Other essential learning

Students take the internship (Social Innovation) and fulfil the language and common core requirements of the undergraduate curriculum.

Students will have individual guidance from a professor (academic tutor) who will help them design a course of study that meets their passions and provides a coherent course of academic study.
