Molecular Biology and Biochemistry and Computing Science Joint Major

Bachelor of Science

The School of Computing Science and the Department of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry offer this joint major program. Student enrolment, appeals, and graduation processing are handled by the School of Computing Science in the Faculty of Applied Sciences.

Admission Requirements

With the exception of direct entry from high school, approval is necessary and students should fill in a computing science major application form and attach all unofficial transcripts. The student should then book an appointment to see a computing science advisor to review the form and to obtain approval.

Graduation Requirements

A minimum grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 must be obtained for upper division courses used to fulfill the program requirements.

Prerequisite Grade Requirement

Computing science course entry requires a grade of C- or better in each prerequisite course. A minimum 2.40 CGPA is required for 200, 300 and 400 division computing courses.

Program Requirements

Lower Division Requirements

Students complete either all of

CMPT 120 - Introduction to Computing Science and Programming I (3)

An elementary introduction to computing science and computer programming, suitable for students with little or no programming background. Students will learn fundamental concepts and terminology of computing science, acquire elementary skills for programming in a high-level language and be exposed to diverse fields within, and applications of computing science. Topics will include: pseudocode, data types and control structures, fundamental algorithms, computability and complexity, computer architecture, and history of computing science. Treatment is informal and programming is presented as a problem-solving tool. Prerequisite: BC Math 12 or equivalent is recommended. Students with credit for CMPT 102, 128, 130 or 166 may not take this course for further credit. Students who have taken CMPT 125, 129, 130 or 135 first may not then take this course for further credit. Quantitative/Breadth-Science.
