Biomedical Toxicology Major (Science Program) - ASMAJ2573

Description:

Biomedical toxicology has emerged as an important science addressing drug safety and the adverse consequences of chemical exposure. The Biomedical Toxicology Major program examines the harmful effects of chemicals on the health and behavior of individuals and society. The safety/toxicity of a wide array of chemicals is examined including pharmaceutical preparations, herbal products, natural toxins, and environmental contaminants, with a focus on their effects on human health. Students learn about basic and clinical toxicology and related areas through lectures, tutorials and class discussions/debates.

This program includes the application of toxicological knowledge and risk assessment and prepares students for a variety of job opportunities following its completion as well as for further study in graduate research or professional programs such as Medicine, Dentistry, and Pharmacy. (Note: Students interested in professional programs should contact the respective faculties to inquire about specific transfer credits.) Many graduates of the Biomedical Toxicology major program pursue careers in scientific research, forensic science, nutrition and food sciences, governmental agencies, consulting agencies, and industrial settings including the pharmaceutical and chemical industries.

Enrolment Requirements:

This is a limited enrolment program that can only accommodate a limited number of students. Eligibility will be competitive and based on a student’s marks in the 2.0 required first-year courses:

BIO120H1, BIO130H1, ( CHM135H1, CHM136H1)/ CHM151Y1, with an average of at least 70% on these 2.0 full-course equivalents (FCEs) and a final mark of at least 60% in each course.

Achieving these estimated marks does not guarantee admission to the program in any given year.

While it is difficult to predict what will be competitive course marks and average in a given year, based on previous years, the estimate is: course marks = mid 80s; average = mid 80s.

Students must apply to this program on the Arts & Science Faculty Registrar's Office website (see the Arts & Science Program Enrolment website for application procedures). Students wishing to enroll in this program will initially apply to a general departmental Major (ASMAJ2675) after their first year and during the spring of their second year of study (and completion of PCL201H1) students will select the focus for their future studies (Biomedical Toxicology or Pharmacology). First and second year courses are the same for all Major programs within the Department (ASMAJ2675/ASMAJ2082/ASMAJ2573). Students cannot combine a Biomedical Toxicology Major program with a Pharmacology Major or Specialist program for their degree.
Students will follow the calendar year in which they initially enter one of our programs (i.e., the ASMAJ2675).

Students wishing to enroll after their second year who have taken PCL201H1 will be considered on a case by case basis. Successful completion of required pre-requisite courses is required to further enroll in upper level program courses.

Pharmacology Major (Science Program) - ASMAJ2082

Description:

Pharmacology is an integrative medical science that builds upon the core foundational disciplines of the basic life sciences. This program is intended for students who want to gain knowledge in Pharmacology in combination with a separate and complementary area of study and is designed for students interested in broad, multidisciplinary training. The Pharmacology Major program is designed to provide students with a broad understanding of the therapeutic properties and clinical uses of externally administered chemical substances in the whole body, as well as the mechanisms of their actions and interactions with molecular, cellular and tissue targets. Students learn about both basic and clinical pharmacology through lectures, tutorials and small group sessions.

This understanding prepares students for a variety of either research-based or non-research-based careers, including positions in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, in government agencies, in research institutes and in universities. Pharmacology (and its application in clinical therapeutics) plays a prominent role in society, and a comprehension of drug mechanisms and uses is fundamental to career success in the fields of medicine, dentistry, pharmacy and nursing. While some students take the Pharmacology Major program in preparation for these professional programs, students are advised to contact the respective Faculties directly for questions related to transfer credits.

Enrolment Requirements:

This is a limited enrolment program that can only accommodate a limited number of students. Eligibility will be competitive and based on a student’s marks in the 2.0 required first-year courses:

BIO120H1, BIO130H1, ( CHM135H1, CHM136H1)/ CHM151Y1, with an average of at least 70% on these 2.0 full-course equivalents (FCEs) and a final mark of at least 60% in each course.

Achieving these estimated marks does not guarantee admission to the program in any given year.

While it is difficult to predict what will be competitive course marks and average in a given year, based on previous years, the estimate is: course marks = mid 80s; average = mid 80s.

Students must apply to this program on the Arts & Science Faculty Registrar's Office website (see the Arts & Science Program Enrolment website for application procedures). Students wishing to enroll in this program will initially apply to a general departmental Major (ASMAJ2675) after their first year and during the spring of their second year of study (and completion of PCL201H1) students will select the focus for their future studies (Biomedical Toxicology or Pharmacology). First and second year courses are the same for all Major programs within the Department (ASMAJ2675/ASMAJ2082/ASMAJ2573). Students cannot combine a Pharmacology Major program with a Pharmacology Major or Specialist program for their degree.
Students will follow the calendar year in which they initially enter one of our programs (i.e., the ASMAJ2675).

Students wishing to enroll after their second year who have taken PCL201H1 will be considered on a case by case basis. Successful completion of required pre-requisite courses is required to further enroll in upper level program courses.

Completion Requirements:

Students will follow the calendar year in which they initially enter one of our programs (i.e., for the majority of students that will be ASMAJ2675).

Specialist in Pharmacology and Biomedical Toxicology (Science Program) - ASSPE2340

Description:

Pharmacology and Biomedical Toxicology are complementary sciences, and the Pharmacology and Biomedical Toxicology Specialist combines the requirements of the two distinct specialist programs. The Specialist program integrates knowledge of pharmacology – the understanding of the therapeutic properties and clinical applications of externally administered chemical substances in the whole body and the mechanisms of their actions and interactions with their intended targets, while biomedical toxicology examines the harmful effects of exogenous chemicals on the health and behaviour of individuals and society, addressing drug safety and the adverse consequences of chemical exposure. Biomedical toxicology includes understanding the safety/toxicity of a wide array of chemicals (pharmaceutical preparations, herbal products, natural toxins and environmental contaminants) with a focus on their effects and adverse consequences on human health.

Both Pharmacology and Biomedical Toxicology are integrative life sciences which build on the core foundational disciplines of the basic life sciences and the prominent role each science plays in society. A comprehension of the biological mechanisms of action and potential uses of chemicals are key to career success in the fields of medicine, dentistry, pharmacy and nursing. The Specialist program prepares students for a variety of job opportunities following its completion as well as for further study in graduate research or professional programs such as Medicine, Dentistry, and Pharmacy. (Note: Students interested in professional programs should contact the respective faculties to inquire about specific transfer credits.) Graduates of this rigorous program will have access to an impressive variety of job opportunities in either research-based or non-research-based careers, including scientific research in research institutes and in universities, positions in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and chemical industries, forensic science, nutrition and food sciences, government or consulting agencies. Students learn about both basic and clinical pharmacology and biomedical toxicology through lectures, tutorials, small group sessions, laboratories and independent research projects. The senior research project course enables students to gain valuable research experience while working under the supervision of an individual faculty member in either a laboratory-based or a non-laboratory-based setting.

Enrolment Requirements:

This is a limited enrolment program that can only accommodate a limited number of students. Eligibility will be competitive and based on a student’s marks in the 3.0 required first-year courses:

BIO120H1, BIO130H1, ( CHM135H1, CHM136H1)/ CHM151Y1, and 1.0 FCE from ( MAT135H1, MAT136H1)/ MAT137Y1/​ MAT157Y1/​ ( PHY131H1, PHY132H1)/ ( PHY151H1, PHY152H1) with an average of at least 70% on these 3.0 full-course equivalents (FCEs) and a final mark of at least 60% in each course.

Achieving these estimated marks does not guarantee admission to the program in any given year.

While it is difficult to predict what will be competitive course marks and average in a given year, based on previous years, the estimate is: course marks = mid 80s; average = mid 80s.

Students must apply to this program on the Arts & Science Faculty Registrar's Office website (see the Arts & Science Program Enrolment website for application procedures). Students will follow the calendar year in which they initially enter one of our programs.
Students cannot combine the Biomedical Toxicology Specialist with either departmental Major programs (Biomedical Toxicology or Pharmacology).

Students wishing to enroll after their second year who have taken PCL201H1 will be considered on a case by case basis. Successful completion of required pre-requisite courses is required to further enroll in upper level program courses. Students may not transfer to the Major program from the Specialist after completion of PCL472Y1/​ PCL474Y1 courses or PEY.

Completion Requirements:

Students will follow the calendar year in which they initially enter one of our programs (i.e., for the majority of students that will be ASSPE2340).

Specialist in Statistical Science: Methods and Practice (Science Program) - ASSPE2270

Description:

Statistical Science encompasses methods and tools for obtaining knowledge from data and for understanding the uncertainty associated with this knowledge. The purposes of the undergraduate programs are to: (1) equip students with a general framework for obtaining knowledge from data; (2) give students skills that they are able to flexibly apply to a variety of problems; and (3) to provide students with the ability to learn new methods as needs, data sources, and technology change.
The Specialist Program in Statistical Science: Methods and Practice is distinguished from the specialist program in Statistical Science: Theory and Methods through its emphasis on collaborative statistical practice and advanced exposure to an allied discipline. The program includes fundamental concepts in probability and statistical theory with mathematical prerequisites relevant to statistical practice. Students in the program acquire advanced expertise in statistical reasoning, methods, and computation, and complete a concentration in another discipline that permits students to become conversant in that discipline to the extent that they can effectively collaborate. Students will also acquire advanced skills in communication, consultation and collaboration and an understanding of the role of mathematical thinking to support the development and evaluate the properties of statistical methods.

Enrolment Requirements:

This is a limited enrolment program that can only accommodate a certain number of students. Eligibility is based on the following:

Enrolment, Admission, Completion Requirements

Accounting Specialist (BCom) - ASSPE2676

Description:

Rotman Commerce at the University of Toronto offers an innovative curriculum combining studies in management, economics, and the liberal arts for an enriched professional undergraduate experience. The program explores the role of commerce in modern society while developing skill and confidence in analysis, effective communication, and decision making. The Rotman Commerce program offers a Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) degree in three different specialist programs, Finance & Economics, Accounting, and Management.

All programs within the Bachelor of Commerce degree build on a common foundation of business and liberal arts courses. Rotman Commerce students specialize in one of three programs: Accounting, Finance and Economics, or Management. Each program combines courses in management and applied economics with a variety of advanced courses in the liberal arts and sciences. The balance assures graduates of a solid understanding of business and modern society along with a command of critical skills in decision-making and organizational leadership.

Rotman Commerce graduates frequently become economists, accountants, actuaries, financial analysts, marketing analysts, managers of firms and government, or proprietors of small businesses. Some commerce students elect to undertake post-graduate studies in the form of further university education: law schools and MBA programs have been particularly favoured destinations of recent graduates.

Enrolment Requirements:

In order to be admitted into the Rotman Commerce POSt, students are first admitted to Y1 of the Faculty of Arts and Science in the Rotman Commerce stream with an “admission guarantee.” Students admitted with the guarantee are invited to enroll in the program after first-year, provided that the following academic requirements are met:

  • Complete RSM100H1 Introduction to Management with a mark of at least 67%
  • Complete ECO101H1 Principles of Microeconomics and ECO102H1 Principles of Macroeconomics with a mark of at least 63% in each
  • Complete MAT133Y1 Calculus and Linear Algebra for Commerce with a mark of at least 63% (C)
  • Complete a minimum of 4.0 full-course equivalents (i.e. 1 FCE beyond the three required courses)

These requirements must be met within one calendar year of the student's enrolment in Arts & Science. For students beginning their studies in September, the requirements must be satisfied no later than the end of the following Summer Session.

Students may repeat any of the required courses once, in order to attain the requisite mark. The repeated course(s) must be completed within the calendar year (as per the terms of the "guarantee"); as such, the repeated course(s) must be taken during either the Winter or Summer Session of first-year (i.e. a student may not extend the terms of her/his guarantee in order to attain the minimum marks).

Failure to meet any of these requirements, or failure to complete all the required courses within the calendar year (assuming full-time studies), will result in losing the admission guarantee. Note that none of the required courses may be completed using the CR/NCR option.

A small number of students are accepted as transfer from other Arts & Science streams in a competitive process after completing similar requirements.

Completion Requirements:

(16.0 full courses or their equivalent)

First Year:

1. ( ECO101H1, ECO102H1), RSM100H1/​ MGT100H1

9. RSM422H1, RSM423H1, RSM424H1, RSM426H1, RSM427H1

Notes:

  • For students who began their Year 2 studies of Rotman Commerce in Fall 2019 and after: STA220H1 and STA255H1 are considered equivalent to ECO220Y1 for the purposes of completing Rotman Commerce program requirements only. They are not considered equivalent by the Economics department. Therefore STA220H1 and STA255H1 will not count towards an ECO minor nor will it count as a pre-req for upper level ECO courses where ECO220Y1 is required. Please consult the Commerce department if you are considering STA220H1 and STA255H1.
  • Students must take a minimum of 8.0 FCE in RSM and 8.0 FCE in non-RSM courses. MGT100H1 is considered equivalent to RSM100H1 and counts as 0.5 FCE in RSM courses towards this requirement. Students may enrol in only one Rotman Commerce Specialist.

Asian Canadian Studies Minor (Arts Program) - ASMIN2728

Description:

The Minor in Asian Canadian Studies focuses on community-engaged learning that explores how to understand the historical, social, cultural, economic, and political forces that affect people of Asian heritage in Canada. Our interdisciplinary courses connect students with local communities, and every course provides opportunities for students to pursue a choice of research interests. Together we critically investigate and add to knowledge about Asian Canadians.

The category "Asian Canadian" is widely understood to refer to people in Canada of East Asian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and West Asian ancestry.

Students take two required half-year core courses in Asian Canadian Studies; select from an array of courses in Asian Canadian Studies; and take additional courses related to the larger contexts of Asian Canadian Studies. The Minor in Asian Canadian Studies is easily combined with other disciplines, such as Anthropology, Art, Economics, English, Geography, History, Political Science and Sociology, as well as with interdisciplinary studies such as Contemporary Asian Studies, Diaspora and Transnational Studies, Equity Studies, East Asian Studies, South Asian Studies, and Near Eastern Studies.

Students will be encouraged to take full advantage of the opportunities available through the Canadian Studies Program, including its journal, ImagiNATIONs, produced by and for undergraduate students and its annual undergraduate student conference. The Canadian Studies Student Union is a focal point for social as well as academic pursuits, and is open to students pursuing a Minor in Asian Canadian Studies. Students also can participate in Asian Canadian Studies student events and in the tri-campus Asian Canadian Studies Research network. The Research network brings together professors and students to discuss current research related to Asian Canadian Studies, Asian diasporas, and global Asian migrations. Students in the minor are also invited to participate in the Asian Institute’s Asian Pathways Research Lab that offers research opportunities in Toronto.

Biomedical Toxicology Major (Science Program) - ASMAJ2573

Description:

Biomedical toxicology has emerged as an important science addressing drug safety and the adverse consequences of chemical exposure. The Biomedical Toxicology Major program examines the harmful effects of chemicals on the health and behavior of individuals and society. The safety/toxicity of a wide array of chemicals is examined including pharmaceutical preparations, herbal products, natural toxins, and environmental contaminants, with a focus on their effects on human health. Students learn about basic and clinical toxicology and related areas through lectures, tutorials and class discussions/debates.

This program includes the application of toxicological knowledge and risk assessment and prepares students for a variety of job opportunities following its completion as well as for further study in graduate research or professional programs such as Medicine, Dentistry, and Pharmacy. (Note: Students interested in professional programs should contact the respective faculties to inquire about specific transfer credits.) Many graduates of the Biomedical Toxicology major program pursue careers in scientific research, forensic science, nutrition and food sciences, governmental agencies, consulting agencies, and industrial settings including the pharmaceutical and chemical industries.

Enrolment Requirements:

This is a limited enrolment program that can only accommodate a limited number of students. Eligibility will be competitive and based on a student’s marks in the 2.0 required first-year courses:

BIO120H1, BIO130H1, ( CHM135H1, CHM136H1)/ CHM151Y1, with an average of at least 70% on these 2.0 full-course equivalents (FCEs) and a final mark of at least 60% in each course.

Achieving these estimated marks does not guarantee admission to the program in any given year.

While it is difficult to predict what will be competitive course marks and average in a given year, based on previous years, the estimate is: course marks = mid 80s; average = mid 80s.

Students must apply to this program on the Arts & Science Faculty Registrar's Office website (see the Arts & Science Program Enrolment website for application procedures). Students wishing to enroll in this program will initially apply to a general departmental Major (ASMAJ2675) after their first year and during the spring of their second year of study (and completion of PCL201H1) students will select the focus for their future studies (Biomedical Toxicology or Pharmacology). First and second year courses are the same for all Major programs within the Department (ASMAJ2675/ASMAJ2082/ASMAJ2573). Students cannot combine a Biomedical Toxicology Major program with a Pharmacology Major or Specialist program for their degree.
Students will follow the calendar year in which they initially enter one of our programs (i.e., the ASMAJ2675).

Students wishing to enroll after their second year who have taken PCL201H1 will be considered on a case by case basis. Successful completion of required pre-requisite courses is required to further enroll in upper level program courses.

Completion Requirements:

Students will follow the calendar year in which they initially enter one of our programs (i.e., for the majority of students that will be ASMAJ2675).

Computer Science Major (Science Program) - ASMAJ1689

Enrolment Requirements:

This is a limited enrolment program that can only accommodate a certain number of students. Eligibility is based on the average of a student's grades in CSC148H1 and CSC165H1/​ CSC240H1 (where CSC240H1 grades are adjusted to account for the course's greater difficulty). In addition, students must have completed at least 4.0 FCEs and achieved a minimum grade of 70% in both CSC148H1 and CSC165H1/​ CSC240H1.

It is difficult to predict the minimum average required for admission in any given year. For more information, including some historical data, please visit http://web.cs.toronto.edu/program/ugrad/admission.htm.

Note:

  • Students admitted to the program after second or third year will be required to pay retroactive deregulated program fees.
  • 100-level courses repeated as “extra” credits are not considered for program admission if a student has already passed specific 200-level CSC courses. For full details about repeating courses for admission to Computer Science, visit http://web.cs.toronto.edu/program/ugrad/admission.htm.
Completion Requirements:

(8.0 full course equivalents [FCEs], including at least 0.5 FCE at the 400-level)

First year (2.5 FCEs):
1. CSC108H1, CSC148H1, CSC165H1/​ CSC240H1; MAT137Y1/​ MAT157Y1/​( MAT135H1, MAT136H1)

Notes:

  1. Students with a strong background in an object-oriented language such as Python, Java or C++ may omit CSC108H1 and proceed directly with CSC148H1. [There is no need to replace the missing half-credit for program completion; however, please base your course choice on what you are ready to take, not on “saving” a half-credit].
  2. CSC240H1 is an accelerated and enriched version of CSC165H1 plus CSC236H1, intended for students with a strong mathematical background, or who develop an interest after taking CSC165H1. If you take CSC240H without CSC165H1, there is no need to replace the missing half-credit for program completion; but please see Note (a).
  3. Consult the Undergraduate Office for advice about choosing among CSC108H1 and CSC148H1, and between CSC165H1 and CSC240H1.
  4. We recommend that students take MAT137Y1 or MAT157Y1, as they have been determined to provide the best preparation for upper-year courses in computer science and benefit students in CSC165H1/​ CSC240H1. Similarly, we recommend MAT223H1 or MAT240H1, if students choose one of these options in their later years.

Second year (2.5 FCEs):

2. CSC207H1, CSC236H1/​ CSC240H1, CSC258H1, CSC263H1/​ CSC265H1; STA247H1/​ STA255H1/​ STA257H1

Data Science Specialist (Science Program) - ASSPE1687

Description:

The field of Data Science is a combination of statistics and computer science methodologies that enable ‘learning from data’. A data scientist extracts information from data, and is involved with every step that must be taken to achieve this goal, from getting acquainted with the data to communicating the results in non-technical language. The Data Science Specialist program prepares students for work in the Data Science industry or government and for graduate studies in Data Science, Computer Science, or Statistics. Students in the program will benefit from a range of advanced courses in Computer Science and Statistics offered by the University of Toronto, as well as from a sequence of three integrative courses designed especially for the program.

The Data Science Specialist program comprises three fundamental and highly-integrated aspects. First, students will acquire expertise in statistical reasoning, methods, and inference essential for any data analyst. Seconds, students will receive in-depth training in computer science: the design and analysis of algorithms and data structures for handling large amounts of data, and best practices in software design. Students will receive training in machine learning, which lies at the intersection of computer and statistical sciences. The third aspect is the application of computer science and statistics to produce analyses of complex, large-scale datasets, and the communication of the results of these analyses; students will receive training in these areas by taking integrative courses that are designed specifically for the Data Science Specialist program. The courses involve experiential learning: students will be working with real large-scale datasets from the domain of business, government, and/or science. The successful student will combine their expertise in computer and statistical science to produce and communicate analyses of complex large-scale datasets.

Skills that graduates of the program will acquire include proficiency in statistical reasoning and computational thinking; data manipulation and exploration, visualization, and communication that are required for work as a data scientist; the ability to apply statistical methods to solve problems in the context of scientific research, business, and government; familiarity and experience with best practices in software development; and knowledge of current software infrastructure for handling large data sets. Graduates of the program will be able to demonstrate the ability to apply machine learning algorithms to large-scale datasets that arise in scientific research, government, and business; create appropriate data visualizations for complex datasets; identify and answer questions that involve applying statistical methods or machine learning algorithms to complex data, and communicating the results; present theresults and limitations of a data analysis at an appropriate technical level for the intended audience.

Enrolment Requirements:

This is a limited enrolment program that can only accommodate a certain number of students. Eligibility is based on the average of a student's grades in CSC148H1 and MAT137Y1/​ MAT157Y1 and STA130H1. ( MAT157Y1 grades will be adjusted to account for the course's greater difficulty.)

In addition, students must have completed at least 4.0 FCEs and achieved a minimum grade of 70% in each of CSC148H1, MAT137Y1/​ MAT157Y1 and STA130H1.

It is difficult to predict the minimum average required for admission in any given year as it depends on the current capacity of the program and the pool of applicants.

Note that students admitted to the program after second or third year will be required to pay retroactive program fees.

Completion Requirements:

(13.0-13.5 Full Course Equivalents [FCEs], including at least 1.5 FCEs at the 400-level)

This requirement may also be met by participating in the PEY Co-op (Professional Experience Year Co-op) program.

Students will be advised to develop domain expertise in at least one area where Data Science is applicable, by taking a sequence of courses in that area throughout their program. Examples of such areas will be provided to students by program advisors and will form the basis for a later proposal for program Focuses (to be approved through internal Arts & Science governance procedures).

Digital Humanities Minor (Arts Program) - ASMIN1337

Description:

Digital humanities (DH) is a discipline at the intersections of the humanities with computing. DH studies human culture -- art, literature, history, geography, religion -- through computational tools and methodologies; and, in turn, DH studies the digital through humanist lenses. Digital humanists study social media phenomena or medieval manuscript archives; computationally analyze thousands of newspaper articles to trace economic developments; construct video games to study literary narratives; or resurrect historical cities through digital maps and virtual reality exhibits.

In introductory and advanced DH courses, students learn about the intellectual landscape of digital humanities scholarship. They learn how to build digital stories, exhibits, and maps; how to digitize rare books; how to analyze collections of data; how to construct digital models and 3D-print them; and how to manage major digital projects. By the end of the program, students conduct a major DH research project of their own or participate in the research of an established faculty project. Throughout the program, students gain a critical perspective on digital technologies, learning to consider the ways digital platforms shape, and are shaped by, the currents of wider social and cultural forces.

By providing this critical and technical skillset, the Digital Humanities Minor prepares students for future paths that range from graduate studies in literature, history, library science, education, or computer science, to careers as technical writers, data analysts and visualizers, project managers, or programmers.

Students should note that some courses at the 200, 300, and 400 levels may have additional prerequisites.

Permission to count courses that are not on the list below towards the Minor in Digital Humanities must be received from the Program Coordinator, and will be granted on a case-by-case basis when the student’s work demonstrably and substantially engages Digital Humanities-related content or research methods.

Earth and Environmental Systems Major (Science Program) - ASMAJ2745

Description:

In the Earth and Environmental Systems Major, students use multidisciplinary approaches to studying the large-scale interactions between the Earth and planetary systems over a broad spectrum of time-scales, addressing deep timescales of millions to billions of years as well as processes taking place in today’s and in future worlds. Courses take an integrative approach to understanding interactions between the solid Earth, the biosphere, the atmosphere and the hydrosphere, addressing how these interactions have developed over geological, historical, and recent time periods. Themes of the program include Earth surface processes (e.g., evolution of landforms and sedimentary basins), paleoclimatology (e.g., drivers of Earth’s natural climate variability), biogeochemistry, Quaternary science (understanding the ice ages) and global environmental change. This program provides broad context over time and space to better understand and provide solutions for the current issues of climate change, resource consumption and global pollution weighing heavily on people and societies. Students are advised to check course prerequisites, to review the clusters of courses listed for the geoscience major program, and to consult the Earth Sciences Undergraduate Handbook for logical course progressions. For further questions, please contact the Student Affairs Coordinator (Scott Moore, Department of Earth Sciences, 22 Russell St. Earth Sciences Center, Room 1062 email: ugrad@es.utoronto.ca).

Environment & Toxicology Specialist (Science Program) - ASSPE0605

Description:

This program is jointly sponsored by the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology and the School of the Environment. For additional information see “School of the Environment” (www.environment.utoronto.ca) or consult our website: www.pharmtox.utoronto.ca.

The Environment and Toxicology Specialist program is an interdisciplinary program which spans the social, physical and life sciences and integrates study of the effects of chemicals not only on the health and behaviour of human beings but on whole ecosystems as the adverse effects associated with therapeutic and environmental chemicals are discussed. This program emphasizes the application of knowledge of environmental toxicology and risk assessment and prepares students for a variety of job opportunities following its completion. Graduates of the Environment and Toxicology program may pursue careers in scientific research, environmental science, conservation science, governmental agencies, consulting agencies, and within chemical, manufacturing or agriculture industries. Students learn to integrate basic environmental and life science with particular aspects of clinical toxicology and related areas through lectures, tutorials, and laboratory and independent research project experience. The senior independent research project course enables students to gain valuable research experience while working under the supervision of an individual faculty member in either a laboratory-based or a non-laboratory-based setting.

The Professional Experience Year (PEY) internship program is a 12-16 month paid employment placement within pharmaceutical/ biotechnology/chemical companies, university research laboratories, university-affiliated organizations, consulting companies or government research agencies. The PEY takes place between the 3rd and 4th years of undergraduate study and is open to Specialists in Pharmacology and Biomedical Toxicology who have a cGPA of at least 3.0. Students who participate in this program agree to return to their SPE program in the Department to complete their 4th year and their degree. The PEY internship provides an excellent opportunity for real-world experience in drug development, project management, client relations, basic and clinical research, information management and regulatory affairs.

Enrolment Requirements:

The Environment and Toxicology Specialist is a Type 2L program and can only accommodate a limited number of students. Admission into this program is determined by a student’s average in the following courses: BIO120H1, BIO130H1, CHM135H1, CHM136H1 and one  full course equivalent from any of PHY131H1, PHY132H1, MAT135H1, MAT136H1. It is expected that a cumulative average 70% in the selected courses will be required for admission; however, achieving that mark does not necessarily guarantee admission to the program in any given year. Entry into the program requires completion of BIO120H1, BIO130H1; CHM135H1, CHM136H1; one FCE from any of PHY131H1, PHY132H1, MAT135H1, or MAT136H1.

Finance and Economics Specialist (BCom) - ASSPE2038

Description:

Rotman Commerce at the University of Toronto offers an innovative curriculum combining studies in management, economics, and the liberal arts for an enriched professional undergraduate experience. The program explores the role of commerce in modern society while developing skill and confidence in analysis, effective communication, and decision making. The Rotman Commerce program offers a Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) degree in three different specialist programs, Finance & Economics, Accounting, and Management.

All programs within the Bachelor of Commerce degree build on a common foundation of business and liberal arts courses. Rotman Commerce students specialize in one of three programs: Accounting, Finance and Economics, or Management. Each program combines courses in management and applied economics with a variety of advanced courses in the liberal arts and sciences. The balance assures graduates of a solid understanding of business and modern society along with a command of critical skills in decision-making and organizational leadership.

Rotman Commerce graduates frequently become economists, accountants, actuaries, financial analysts, marketing analysts, managers of firms and government, or proprietors of small businesses. Some commerce students elect to undertake post-graduate studies in the form of further university education: law schools and MBA programs have been particularly favoured destinations of recent graduates.

Enrolment Requirements:

In order to be admitted into the Rotman Commerce POSt, students are first admitted to Y1 of the Faculty of Arts and Science in the Rotman Commerce stream with an “admission guarantee.” Students admitted with the guarantee are invited to enroll in the program after first-year, provided that the following academic requirements are met:

  • Complete RSM100H1 Introduction to Management with a mark of at least 67%
  • Complete ECO101H1 Principles of Microeconomics and ECO102H1 Principles of Macroeconomics with a mark of at least 63% in each
  • Complete MAT133Y1 Calculus and Linear Algebra for Commerce with a mark of at least 63% (C)
  • Complete a minimum of 4.0 full-course equivalents (i.e. 1 FCE beyond the three required courses)

These requirements must be met within one calendar year of the student's enrolment in Arts & Science. For students beginning their studies in September, the requirements must be satisfied no later than the end of the following Summer Session.

Students may repeat any of the required courses once, in order to attain the requisite mark. The repeated course(s) must be completed within the calendar year (as per the terms of the "guarantee"); as such, the repeated course(s) must be taken during either the Winter or Summer Session of first-year (i.e. a student may not extend the terms of her/his guarantee in order to attain the minimum marks).

Failure to meet any of these requirements, or failure to complete all the required courses within the calendar year (assuming full-time studies), will result in losing the admission guarantee. Note that none of the required courses may be completed using the CR/NCR option.

A small number of students are accepted as transfer from other Arts & Science streams in a competitive process after completing similar requirements.

Completion Requirements:

(15 full courses or their equivalent)

First Year:

1. ( ECO101H1, ECO102H1), RSM100H1/​ MGT100H1

Notes:

  • For students who began their Year 2 studies of Rotman Commerce in Fall 2019 and after: STA220H1 and STA255H1 are considered equivalent to ECO220Y1 for the purposes of completing Rotman Commerce program requirements only. They are not considered equivalent by the Economics department. Therefore STA220H1 and STA255H1 will not count towards an ECO minor nor will it count as a pre-req for upper level ECO courses where ECO220Y1 is required. Please consult the Commerce department if you are considering STA220H1 and STA255H1.
  • Students must take a minimum of 8.0 FCE in RSM and 8.0 FCE in non-RSM courses. MGT100H1 is considered equivalent to RSM100H1 and counts as 0.5 FCE in RSM courses towards this requirement. Students may enrol in only one Rotman Commerce Specialist.

Focus in Computer Vision - ASFOC1689D

Description:

(3.5 FCEs)

Computer vision is the science and technology of machines that can see. As a science, the goal of computer vision is to understand the computational processes required for a machine to come to an understanding of the content of a set of images. The data here may be a single snapshot, a video sequence, or a set of images from different viewpoints or provided by medical scanners.

The computer vision focus introduces students to the study of vision from a computational point of view. That is, we attempt to clearly define computational problems for various steps of the overall process, and then show how these problems can be tackled with appropriate algorithms.

Students who wish to pursue computer vision should have an understanding of linear algebra and calculus of several variables. Moreover, they should be solid programmers and have a good understanding of data structures and algorithm design. These basic tools are required in order to first pose computational vision problems, and then develop and test algorithms for the solution to those problems.

Focus in Theory of Computation - ASFOC1689I

Description:

(5.5 FCEs)

Why is it easy to sort a list of numbers, but hard to break Internet encryption schemes? Is finding a solution to a problem harder than checking that a solution is correct? Can we find good approximate solutions, even when the exact solutions seem out of reach? Theory of Computation studies the inherent complexity of fundamental algorithmic problems. On one hand, we develop ground-breaking efficient data structures and algorithms. On the other, we have yet to develop good algorithms for many problems despite decades of effort, and for these problems we strive to prove no time- or space-efficient algorithms will ever solve them. While the field has seen some successful impossibility results, there are still many problems (such as those underlying modern cryptography and security) for which we do not know either efficient algorithms or strong lower bounds!

This focus takes a rigorous, mathematical approach to computational problem-solving: students will gain a deep understanding of algorithm paradigms and measures of problem complexity, and develop the skills necessary to convey abstract ideas with precision and clarity. Many of our students go on to graduate studies and sophisticated algorithmic work in industry. This focus has natural ties with many branches of mathematics and is the foundation of many computer science fields. Consequently, our students often apply their theoretical knowledge to other fields of interest.

We strongly encourage taking the enriched theory courses ( CSC240H1, CSC265H1) as well as specialist/major versions of the MAT requirements for our focus. [Depending on courses selected for points 3 & 4, students may need to complete 0.5–1.0 FCE in addition to the 12.0 FCEs required to complete the Specialist program.]

Management Specialist (BCom) - ASSPE2431

Description:

Rotman Commerce at the University of Toronto offers an innovative curriculum combining studies in management, economics, and the liberal arts for an enriched professional undergraduate experience. The program explores the role of commerce in modern society while developing skill and confidence in analysis, effective communication, and decision making. The Rotman Commerce program offers a Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) degree in three different specialist programs, Finance & Economics, Accounting, and Management.

All programs within the Bachelor of Commerce degree build on a common foundation of business and liberal arts courses. Rotman Commerce students specialize in one of three programs: Accounting, Finance and Economics, or Management. Each program combines courses in management and applied economics with a variety of advanced courses in the liberal arts and sciences. The balance assures graduates of a solid understanding of business and modern society along with a command of critical skills in decision-making and organizational leadership.

Rotman Commerce graduates frequently become economists, accountants, actuaries, financial analysts, marketing analysts, managers of firms and government, or proprietors of small businesses. Some commerce students elect to undertake post-graduate studies in the form of further university education: law schools and MBA programs have been particularly favoured destinations of recent graduates.

Enrolment Requirements:

In order to be admitted into the Rotman Commerce POSt, students are first admitted to Y1 of the Faculty of Arts and Science in the Rotman Commerce stream with an “admission guarantee.” Students admitted with the guarantee are invited to enroll in the program after first-year, provided that the following academic requirements are met:

  • Complete RSM100H1 Introduction to Management with a mark of at least 67%
  • Complete ECO101H1 Principles of Microeconomics and ECO102H1 Principles of Macroeconomics with a mark of at least 63% in each
  • Complete MAT133Y1 Calculus and Linear Algebra for Commerce with a mark of at least 63% (C)
  • Complete a minimum of 4.0 full-course equivalents (i.e. 1 FCE beyond the three required courses)

These requirements must be met within one calendar year of the student's enrolment in Arts & Science. For students beginning their studies in September, the requirements must be satisfied no later than the end of the following Summer Session.

Students may repeat any of the required courses once, in order to attain the requisite mark. The repeated course(s) must be completed within the calendar year (as per the terms of the "guarantee"); as such, the repeated course(s) must be taken during either the Winter or Summer Session of first-year (i.e. a student may not extend the terms of her/his guarantee in order to attain the minimum marks).

Failure to meet any of these requirements, or failure to complete all the required courses within the calendar year (assuming full-time studies), will result in losing the admission guarantee. Note that none of the required courses may be completed using the CR/NCR option.

A small number of students are accepted as transfer from other Arts & Science streams in a competitive process after completing similar requirements.

Completion Requirements:

(12.5 full courses or their equivalent)

First Year:

1. ( ECO101H1, ECO102H1), RSM100H1/​ MGT100H1

Notes:

  • For students who began their Year 2 studies of Rotman Commerce in Fall 2019 and after: STA220H1 and STA255H1 are considered equivalent to ECO220Y1 for the purposes of completing Rotman Commerce program requirements only. They are not considered equivalent by the Economics department. Therefore STA220H1 and STA255H1 will not count towards an ECO minor nor will it count as a pre-req for upper level ECO courses where ECO220Y1 is required. Please consult the Commerce department if you are considering STA220H1 and STA255H1.
  • Students must take a minimum of 8.0 FCE in RSM and 8.0 FCE in non-RSM courses. MGT100H1 is considered equivalent to RSM100H1 and counts as 0.5 FCE in RSM courses towards this requirement. Students may enrol in only one Rotman Commerce Specialist.

Pharmacology Major (Science Program) - ASMAJ2082

Description:

Pharmacology is an integrative medical science that builds upon the core foundational disciplines of the basic life sciences. This program is intended for students who want to gain knowledge in Pharmacology in combination with a separate and complementary area of study and is designed for students interested in broad, multidisciplinary training. The Pharmacology Major program is designed to provide students with a broad understanding of the therapeutic properties and clinical uses of externally administered chemical substances in the whole body, as well as the mechanisms of their actions and interactions with molecular, cellular and tissue targets. Students learn about both basic and clinical pharmacology through lectures, tutorials and small group sessions.

This understanding prepares students for a variety of either research-based or non-research-based careers, including positions in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, in government agencies, in research institutes and in universities. Pharmacology (and its application in clinical therapeutics) plays a prominent role in society, and a comprehension of drug mechanisms and uses is fundamental to career success in the fields of medicine, dentistry, pharmacy and nursing. While some students take the Pharmacology Major program in preparation for these professional programs, students are advised to contact the respective Faculties directly for questions related to transfer credits.

Enrolment Requirements:

This is a limited enrolment program that can only accommodate a limited number of students. Eligibility will be competitive and based on a student’s marks in the 2.0 required first-year courses:

BIO120H1, BIO130H1, ( CHM135H1, CHM136H1)/ CHM151Y1, with an average of at least 70% on these 2.0 full-course equivalents (FCEs) and a final mark of at least 60% in each course.

Achieving these estimated marks does not guarantee admission to the program in any given year.

While it is difficult to predict what will be competitive course marks and average in a given year, based on previous years, the estimate is: course marks = mid 80s; average = mid 80s.

Students must apply to this program on the Arts & Science Faculty Registrar's Office website (see the Arts & Science Program Enrolment website for application procedures). Students wishing to enroll in this program will initially apply to a general departmental Major (ASMAJ2675) after their first year and during the spring of their second year of study (and completion of PCL201H1) students will select the focus for their future studies (Biomedical Toxicology or Pharmacology). First and second year courses are the same for all Major programs within the Department (ASMAJ2675/ASMAJ2082/ASMAJ2573). Students cannot combine a Pharmacology Major program with a Pharmacology Major or Specialist program for their degree.
Students will follow the calendar year in which they initially enter one of our programs (i.e., the ASMAJ2675).

Students wishing to enroll after their second year who have taken PCL201H1 will be considered on a case by case basis. Successful completion of required pre-requisite courses is required to further enroll in upper level program courses.

Completion Requirements:

Students will follow the calendar year in which they initially enter one of our programs (i.e., for the majority of students that will be ASMAJ2675).

Pharmacology Specialist (Science Program) - ASSPE2082

Description:

Pharmacology is an integrative medical science that builds upon the core foundational disciplines of the basic life sciences. The Pharmacology Specialist program aims to provide students with an understanding of the therapeutic properties and clinical uses of externally administered chemical substances in the whole body, as well as the mechanisms of their actions and interactions with molecular, cellular and tissue targets. This understanding prepares students for a variety of either research-based or non-research-based careers, including positions in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, in government agencies, in research institutes and in universities. Students learn about both basic and clinical pharmacology through lectures, tutorials, laboratories and independent research projects. The senior research project course enables students to gain valuable research experience while working under the supervision of an individual faculty member in either a laboratory-based or a non-laboratory-based setting.

Pharmacology (and its application in clinical therapeutics) plays a prominent role in society, and a comprehension of drug mechanisms and uses is fundamental to career success in the fields of medicine, dentistry, pharmacy and nursing. While some students take the Pharmacology Specialist program in preparation for these professional programs, students are advised to contact the respective Faculties directly for questions related to transfer credits.

Enrolment Requirements:

This is a limited enrolment program that can only accommodate a limited number of students. Eligibility will be competitive and based on a student’s marks in the 3.0 required first-year courses:

Physics Specialist (Science Program) - ASSPE1944

Description:

The Physics Specialist Program offers rigorous training in the full spectrum of core physics subfields, as well as their numerous important applications. Practical courses treat the experimental and computational aspects and complement the lecture courses. Physics concerns many of the most fundamental questions in our scientific understanding of the universe. What is the nature of matter and energy at the smallest scales? What are the physical processes that govern the Earth’s climate? What is the nature of light and how can it be controlled? How do the collective properties of solids emerge from those of individual atoms? How do biological processes organize themselves to maintain their survival? What is the structure and evolution of the Earth and the other planets? How can quantum information be used for computation? Physics seeks answers to these questions using a combination of theory, computation and precise experimental work, and the results find application across all of science.

Physiology Major (Science Program) - ASMAJ0482

Enrolment Requirements:

This is a limited enrolment program that can only accommodate a limited number of students. Eligibility will be competitive and based on a student’s marks in the 3.0 FCE required first-year courses:

BIO120H1, BIO130H1, ( CHM135H1, CHM136H1)/ CHM151Y1, and 1.0 FCE from any of the following: MAT135H1, MAT136H1, MAT137Y1, MAT157Y1, PHY131H1, PHY132H1, PHY151H1, PHY152H1 with an average of at least 70% on these 3.0 full-course equivalents (FCEs) and a final mark of at least 60% in each course.

Sexual Diversity Studies Major (Arts Program) - ASMAJ1240

Description:

The Sexual Diversity Studies program (Specialist, Major, Minor) enables students to explore, analyze, and challenge the ways in which sexuality shapes people’s lives in both local and global contexts. The program provides vibrant interdisciplinary scholarship and academic learning on the historical and contemporary formations of sexual practices at the intersections of race, class, gender, disability, and citizenship status, among other social relations and processes. Our courses are designed to foster critical conversations of queer and normative sexualities; the formation of sexual, racial, and gender, and gender-non-conforming personhood; and the role of sexuality in culture and politics both in North America and transnationally.

Specialist in Pharmacology and Biomedical Toxicology (Science Program) - ASSPE2340

Description:

Pharmacology and Biomedical Toxicology are complementary sciences, and the Pharmacology and Biomedical Toxicology Specialist combines the requirements of the two distinct specialist programs. The Specialist program integrates knowledge of pharmacology – the understanding of the therapeutic properties and clinical applications of externally administered chemical substances in the whole body and the mechanisms of their actions and interactions with their intended targets, while biomedical toxicology examines the harmful effects of exogenous chemicals on the health and behaviour of individuals and society, addressing drug safety and the adverse consequences of chemical exposure. Biomedical toxicology includes understanding the safety/toxicity of a wide array of chemicals (pharmaceutical preparations, herbal products, natural toxins and environmental contaminants) with a focus on their effects and adverse consequences on human health.

Both Pharmacology and Biomedical Toxicology are integrative life sciences which build on the core foundational disciplines of the basic life sciences and the prominent role each science plays in society. A comprehension of the biological mechanisms of action and potential uses of chemicals are key to career success in the fields of medicine, dentistry, pharmacy and nursing. The Specialist program prepares students for a variety of job opportunities following its completion as well as for further study in graduate research or professional programs such as Medicine, Dentistry, and Pharmacy. (Note: Students interested in professional programs should contact the respective faculties to inquire about specific transfer credits.) Graduates of this rigorous program will have access to an impressive variety of job opportunities in either research-based or non-research-based careers, including scientific research in research institutes and in universities, positions in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and chemical industries, forensic science, nutrition and food sciences, government or consulting agencies. Students learn about both basic and clinical pharmacology and biomedical toxicology through lectures, tutorials, small group sessions, laboratories and independent research projects. The senior research project course enables students to gain valuable research experience while working under the supervision of an individual faculty member in either a laboratory-based or a non-laboratory-based setting.

Enrolment Requirements:

This is a limited enrolment program that can only accommodate a limited number of students. Eligibility will be competitive and based on a student’s marks in the 3.0 required first-year courses:

BIO120H1, BIO130H1, ( CHM135H1, CHM136H1)/ CHM151Y1, and 1.0 FCE from ( MAT135H1, MAT136H1)/ MAT137Y1/​ MAT157Y1/​ ( PHY131H1, PHY132H1)/ ( PHY151H1, PHY152H1) with an average of at least 70% on these 3.0 full-course equivalents (FCEs) and a final mark of at least 60% in each course.

Achieving these estimated marks does not guarantee admission to the program in any given year.

While it is difficult to predict what will be competitive course marks and average in a given year, based on previous years, the estimate is: course marks = mid 80s; average = mid 80s.

Students must apply to this program on the Arts & Science Faculty Registrar's Office website (see the Arts & Science Program Enrolment website for application procedures). Students will follow the calendar year in which they initially enter one of our programs.
Students cannot combine the Biomedical Toxicology Specialist with either departmental Major programs (Biomedical Toxicology or Pharmacology).

Students wishing to enroll after their second year who have taken PCL201H1 will be considered on a case by case basis. Successful completion of required pre-requisite courses is required to further enroll in upper level program courses. Students may not transfer to the Major program from the Specialist after completion of PCL472Y1/​ PCL474Y1 courses or PEY.

Completion Requirements:

Students will follow the calendar year in which they initially enter one of our programs (i.e., for the majority of students that will be ASSPE2340).
