MODULES OFFERED IN THE BMSc PROGRAM
Honors Specialization Modules:
Within the BMSc Program, each Honors Specialization module has a maximum capacity and admission will be competitive if the number of students requesting admission is greater than the maximum capacity of the module. Admission to the BMSc Program does not guarantee admission to a particular Honors Specialization module.

Once admitted to Year 3 of the BMSc Program, admission to each Honors Specialization module in Year 3 will be based on the average obtained in ALL of the 2000-level modular courses listed in the Admission Requirements for the module to which the student applies for Year 3. The 2000-level courses listed in the Admission Requirements will also be used towards fulfilling the Module requirements. Students satisfying the conditions for assured admission to Year 3 of the BMSc Program from the MEDICAL SCIENCES FIRST ENTRY PROGRAM (Medical Sciences 2) will receive priority placement in the Honors Specialization modules in Year 3. Once these students have been adjudicated into the Honors Specialization modules, students admitted to Year 3 of the BMSc Program from the competitive pool will be adjudicated into the remaining spaces in the Honors Specialization modules. Students admitted to Year 3 of the BMSc Program from the competitive pool without having completed all of the 2000-level courses listed in the Admission Requirements for a particular module may be granted special permission for admission, if (i) there are spaces remaining in the module, and (ii) they have satisfied the prerequisites for the 3000-level modular courses.

A minimum Weighted Average of 75% will be required for admission to Year 4 of any Honors Specialization module. See the Weighted Average Chart for the courses/method used to calculate the Weighted Average for each Honors Specialization module. The Weighted Average will be higher than 75% for admission to Year 4 of an Honors Specialization module if the number of students requesting admission is greater than the maximum capacity of the module. Admission to each Honors Specialization modules in Year 4 also requires completion of ALL of the courses indicated in the Weighted Average Chart below.

Students admitted to Year 3 of the BMSc Program who have not completed all of the 2000-level courses listed in the Admission Requirements for both Major modules may be granted special permission for admission if they have the prerequisites to register in the 3000-level courses required in the module.

Specialization Modules:
Students admitted to Year 3 of the BMSc Program are eligible to register in Specialization modules provided they have completed all of the 2000-level courses listed in the Admission Requirements for the Specialization module and have the prerequisites to register in the 3000-level courses required in the module (some 3000-level courses include mark/average requirements in their prerequisites). Students admitted to Year 3 of the BMSc Program who have not completed all of the 2000-level courses listed in the Admission Requirements for the Specialization may be granted special permission for admission if they have the prerequisites to register in the 3000-level courses required in the module. Students in the BMSc Program are encouraged to pursue either an Honors Specialization module or Double Major modules leading to Honors degrees. Specialization modules lead to 4-year BMSc (non-honors) degrees.
