This non-specialist bachelor's degree program offers students a broad education with an applied orientation. This program may be satisfied either through the General Applied Sciences option or through the Double Minor Option.
General Applied Sciences Option
Students must complete 30 credit hours of upper division Faculty of Science and Faculty of Applied Sciences courses subject to the following.
- no more than nine credit hours of these courses may be from the Faculty of Science - no more than nine of these 30 hours may be satisfied by transfer credit - a grade point average of 2.00 is required on the courses used for the General Applied Sciences Option.
For the purposes of this requirement, MACM courses are counted as courses of the School of Computing Science.
Double Minor Option
Students may satisfy the Double Minor Option by taking two minors (or extended minors) at least one of which must be in the Faculty of Applied Sciences.
Overall Degree Requirements
Students must complete 120 credit hours overall for the degree, including 45 upper division credit hours. A 2.00 graduation GPA is required as described under Graduation Requirements in the General Information section of this Calendar.
Students in the Faculty of Applied Sciences may apply for admission to either the General Applied Sciences option or the Double Minor Option at any time. Students in faculties other than Applied Sciences may apply for admission to the Double Minor Option upon acceptance into two qualifying minor programs by the school or departments concerned.
In addition, a limited number of spaces are available each year for students transferring to the General Applied Sciences Option from other faculties.
Admission is competitive, based on a GPA in upper division applied sciences courses. To be considered for admission, students must have successfully completed at least nine credit hours of upper division applied sciences courses with a GPA of 2.25.
Enrolment in the upper division courses of a particular school may be limited to those Bachelor of General Studies students who also meet the admission standards of that school. Admission to the BGS program may not be used to bypass the enrolment limitations of any other applied sciences program.
