Welcome to the Faculty of Science
- Most classes will continue to be delivered through remote methods in the fall term.
- If allowed by government and health authorities, and provided that personal health and safety can be maintained, we will open selected courses for in-person instructional activities where the learning objectives cannot easily be replicated through remote instruction.
- Some co-curricular and extra-curricular programing (co-op and recreation, for example) may proceed on an in-person basis.
- We will ensure that remote learning and teaching provides a high-quality experience, and ensure that students who expect to graduate in the 2020/2021 academic year are able to meet their degree requirements.
- We will continue to enhance remote learning support for students and instructors.
- We will look at ways to simplify and/or streamline academic requirements to enable students to progress through their programs more easily.
- Student supports and services will continue to be delivered remotely, with some services offered in-person, subject to health and safety guidelines.
