Beyond First Year

Event Details

Wednesday Mar 2, 5 - 6 PM or Saturday Mar 5, 11 AM - 12 PM

Free - Registration Required
Learn about the process of selecting a Science specialization (e.g. major) going into Year 2.

Find out what you'll need to know and do to apply for a specialization in the next few months.

Science Academic Advisors will share key information including answering the important questions like "how?" and "when?", to ensure that you are on the right track for second year. Advisors will stick around after the info session to give you a chance to ask your questions, too. Of the 140 questions asked by participants, the top voted questions in 2021 included:

  • What's the point of an Honours specialization? Should I do one?
  • What happens if I don't get my first choice of specialization?
  • What's are combined majors, and what happens if I take a minor?
