General Arts and Science Science and Engineering Preparation UOIT Transfer

Program Description
This stream is designed for individuals interested in pursuing various science and engineering programs at UOIT. The first two semesters of this three-semester option are identical to the GASK stream. This program will give you an opportunity to develop and refine your academic skills and ultimately provide you with foundational knowledge you will need to ensure your success in your subsequent academic studies. Some General Arts and Science courses are also transferable to other post-secondary programs. There are prescribed General Arts and Science streams for students with specific academic/career goals and individual academic planning assistance is offered by your student advisor.Durham College offers streams that prepare you specifically for further studies in the health sciences, engineering, social sciences or liberal arts as well as specific articulation/transfer agreements with the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) and Trent University for graduates of General Arts and Science. You will be required to complete six (three-credit) courses per semester (12 courses in total). These include five core (or mandatory) courses in communications (two), computers (two) and mathematics (one). The remaining seven courses, depending on your chosen academic/ career goals, will either be prescribed for you in a defined program of study or they can be chosen from a wide variety of general education electives in consultation with your student advisor. Electives courses, again depending on your chosen academic/career goals, are drawn from the natural sciences, social sciences and humanities. Graduates of the General Arts and Science program may qualify for admission to and/or advanced standing to pursue additional college or university studies.

Career Options
As a graduate you can proceed to full-time employment or further your studies in other college diploma, advanced diploma or university degree programs. Please note: Each educational institution determines its own admission requirements. If you plan to attend any college other than Durham College or a university, please ensure that courses taken meet its admission requirements.
