HMB PROGRAM PATHWAY TOOLS

So, you have decided to enroll in a HMB program! We are so excited that you are joining the ranks of our “Bioneers,” and want to ensure you are equipped with the knowledge and context to make the most out of your HMB program.

Below, you will find each program outlined by year of study. Please note that this is a guide only.

This guide does not replace the Arts & Science Calendar, nor is it required to do the respective courses in the order listed below for each program. This guide is only to help you course map and plan your program pathway, and to help ensure you have all necessary pre-requisites for courses in later years.

Please note that this guide is based on the program requirements as listed in the 2017-2018 Calendar.

First Year- Fall Semester
1. BIO120H1
2. CHM135H1

1. BIO130H1
2. CHM136H1

*while you only need one of these courses for program requirements, we do suggest you take 1.0 FCE of math and at least 0.5 FCE of physics as it opens up more courses you can take later. Also, computer science is increasingly becoming important to the study of genetics. Consider taking an introductory computer science course to familiarize yourself with many key terms and concepts that may prove useful in future studies or in your career in genetics.
