You may apply for admission into the Faculty of Science by indicating bachelor of science in the appropriate place on the undergraduate application for admission.
Direct entry into the faculty is subject to meeting the general admission requirements for Memorial University, including appropriate courses in mathematics and a laboratory science. Entry into a specific major normally requires the completion of at least 10 three-credit courses at the university level. Some majors are competitive for a limited number of placements. Upon completion of the required courses, normally at the end of your first year, you can apply for a major.
