Teaching area information for commencing students

Students are required to have two teaching areas. The Major Teaching Area, sometimes referred to as the "1st Teaching Area", must relate directly to the student's Science major. Teaching Areas currently offered by the faculty are shown below.

Students may choose both their Teaching Areas from the list on the left, or their Major Teaching Area from that list and their Minor Teaching Area from the list on the right. As well, all Year 1 students must complete a minimum of 12 credit points of junior units of study in chemistry or physics.
