*MIN400H1 – Geology Camp is taken in the week prior to fall term of fourth year. The results of this are used in computing the student's fourth year fall session average. An extra fee is charged to cover cost of room, board and travel.

*Note. In year 4 students are required to select 2 CS/HSS electives and 3 technical electives. These courses may be taken in either term subject to maintaining the minimum required course load.

*Note: Technical Electives outside of the group of courses listed must be approved in advance. Students wishing to take elective courses from other departments need to ensure that they have the appropriate background and prerequisites. Students with an overall average of 75% or greater in their third year may take up to two graduate level (1000-series) courses, depending upon availability. In all cases the interested student should consult with the Department’s Office of Student Services (GB116) to obtain further information and the appropriate permission.
