12 elective course credits from the Faculty of Arts, the Faculty of Education, the Faculty of Law, the Faculty of Social Sciences or the Telfer School of Management1
15 elective course credits
1A language course at the 1000 or 2000 level is strongly recommended.

Students who take the Geology-Physics Program and wish to become registered members of the Association of Professional Geoscientists of Ontario must take 21 credits in Earth Sciences from among the optional courses in order to satisfy the requirements of the professional association.

This message is intended for students registered in the Faculty of Science. If the components of your program of study require common compulsory courses, you will have to replace the credits as follows:

1) 1000-level courses must be replaced with elective course credits;

2) 2000-level courses and above must be replaced with optional course credits from either discipline at the same level or above.

Please note that all programs in the Faculty of Science require a minimum of 12 elective course credits offered by the Faculty of Arts, the Faculty of Education, the Faculty of Law, the Faculty of Social Sciences or the Telfer School of Management. Once you have decided on the replacement courses, please inform the Office of Undergraduate Programs of the Faculty of Science by email at infosci@uOttawa.ca so we may amend your Rabaska audit accordingly.
