Science @ Surrey has four components:

What is Science Year One?

Science Year One is a suite of first-year science courses which, together with the courses offered by other faculties, provide an excellent first step for new students who wish to major in many areas of science and related faculties.

Interested in professional schools like medicine, dentistry, veterinary science, and other areas? This program is for you!  Unsure of what you want to take, but know you want Science?  This program is for you!  Know the specific subject you want to focus on?  This program is for you!

Spread over two terms, the program has a flexible cohort structure that offers the benefits of small classes which facilitate the development of friendships and support groups, and strong rapport between students and instructors.

Lecture, laboratory, and tutorial sections for first-year biology, chemistry, earth science, kinesiology, and physics courses are held at the Surrey campus in our new Surrey teaching laboratories.  

Courses offered at SFU Surrey encompass the first-year academic courses required to proceed to General Science or the programs listed at the following link:
