25 Science Majors

A programme leading to a Bachelor's degree requires a minimum of 120 MCs, and will typically take about three years to complete. A programme leading to a Bachelor's degree with Honours requires a minimum of 160 MCs, and will usually take four years to complete.

To graduate, students must fulfil the requirements for at least one primary major although one is allowed to read a maximum of two majors. Pharmacy students, however, are allowed to read only one major.

Students who relish challenges may take a double major programme (one primary and one second major) or even a double degree programme (two full majors).

With the exception of Computational Biology, Data Science and Analytics, Environmental Studies and Pharmacy which are strictly four-year programmes, all majors allow students to graduate with a Bachelor's degree.
Listed below are the primary majors offered by the Faculty.
