Understanding InSciTE

InSciTE is a blend of main stream courses and integrated learning.  You will attend traditional first year classes, but will also have access to our integrated Chemistry and InSciTE courses.

  • A full course load includes 30 credits (*30) in a year 
  • InSciTE covers *15 of those credits, leaving you free to choose your remaining *15 credits.  


Step 1)
 Begin by choosing your stream of interest:

Life Sciences Stream      Physical Sciences Stream

For students with a stronger interest in Biology,
Chemistry and Mathematics (Calculus)

         For students with a stronger interest in Physics,
Chemistry and Mathematics (Calculus)


Step 2)
  Apply for a spot in InSciTE.
You will need your CCID, which is assigned after you apply for admission to Science. Once you are offered a spot in InSciTE, we will send you more information on how to register in the associated courses. 

Life Sciences Stream Physical Sciences Stream

Courses taken include BIOL 107/108,
MATH 134, CHEM 101, SCI 151,*3 option

           Courses taken include PHYS 144, MATH 144,
CHEM 101, SCI 151, *3 option

All students accepted to InSciTE will take a special section of CHEM 101 and the new SCI 151 course.  You can then register for a *3 credit option course to meet your program requirements or personal learning goals.


Step 3)
 Choose option courses for the Winter term

In the Winter term, you will continue with SCI 151. You can then register for up to *12 credits of option courses to meet your program requirements or personal learning goals.
