Notes

  • In keeping with the interdisciplinary goals of the minor, students cannot take courses in the same department as their major, specialization, or honours program to fulfill their program requirements, with the exception of BIOL 205/ LOYC 205.
  • Students may only apply credits from Special Topics courses LOYC 298, LOYC 398, and LOYC 498 where the subject matter is of a sustainability nature.
  • Students are responsible for ensuring they have the necessary prerequisites for courses at the 300 and 400 level.
  • The minor is designed for students to combine with an honours, specialization, or major in another discipline.
  • Students must have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.00 in courses taken toward the minor in order to be awarded the minor upon graduation.
  • Several of the courses listed in this program are cross-listed. In cases where cross-listed courses appear, either version of the course may be applied towards the program requirements. Students may not, however, take both versions of a cross-listed course for credit.
  • Students are responsible for satisfying their particular degree requirements.
