Other Requirements

Students must also complete a minimum of five additional credit hours of upper division courses in the Faculty of Science or physical geography. These courses may be used toward the completion of the minor requirement in another department.

Students who intend to apply for registration with APEGBC may be required to complete some additional courses not required for the major program. Seek advice from the Department of Earth Sciences.

Honors Program

The honors program provides students with a wider cross-section of discipline-related courses while providing an opportunity for independent research. Entry into the honors program requires a cumulative grade point average of 3.00 or higher, and permission of the Department of Earth Sciences.

The BSc honors in earth sciences has the same requirements as that required for the major except that student must also satisfy the following additional requirements.

Minor Program

Students must complete the following two courses.

EASC 101-3 Physical Geology

EASC 102-3 Historical Geology

and at least three of

EASC 201-3 Stratigraphy and Sedimentation

EASC 202-3 Introduction to Mineralogy

EASC 203-3 Paleontology

EASC 204-3 Structural Geology

EASC 205-3 Introduction to Petrology

EASC 207-3 Introduction to Geophysics

EASC 208-3 Introduction to Geochemistry

plus 14 credit hours in any 300 and 400 level earth sciences courses excluding EASC 490, 491, 492, 493 and 499.

Cooperative Education Program

Cooperative education combines relevant work experience with academic studies. Participating students alternate semesters on campus and in study related employment. The program includes pre-employment orientation and four full-time paid work semesters. A major and honors program leading to a BSc degree in earth sciences and cooperative education are available to qualified students.

To enrol, students should attend the coop information meetings held in the first two weeks of the semester prior to the semester in which they wish to work. Students should seek advice from the science and environment cooperative education office as early as possible in their university careers to facilitate optimal scheduling. Contact the Cooperative Education Office, 8108 South Science Building. Telephone 778.782 4716.

Professional Registration as a BC Geoscientist

The right to practice in, and to accept professional responsibility for geoscience in BC is limited to registered members of the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of British Columbia (APEGBC). Requirements can be met through the Department of Earth Sciences and selected courses from other university departments. Consult the program director for further details.
