General Science

Our General Science program is a great choice if you are looking for a multidisciplinary education that allows you the freedom to explore your interests. It is very easy to move from the General Science program into a specific major at any point during your undergraduate degree. 

Our General Science program has 10 departments for you to choose courses from:

  • Anthropology
  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Computer Science
  • Economics
  • Geography
  • Mathematical Sciences
  • Geology 
  • Sustainability Sciences
  • Physics 

You are also able to take courses in Environmental Studies, Applied Life Sciences, Environmental Science and Water Resource Sciences 

These departments can be arranged into four subfields if you have determined a topical interest:

Life Sciences

This area focuses on the study of living organisms and how those living systems work. Our natural world is reduced to its most basic principles to observe patterns in organisms from bacteria to humans. Learn more about Applied Life Science, Anthropology, Bioinformatics, Biology, Chemistry and Physics within this area.

Environmental Science & Policy

This area studies the distribution and interaction between humans and the physical features of our world. You will focus on understanding and evaluating environmental issues and choices in a sound scientific manner. Learn more about Earth Sciences, Economics, Geography, Geoarchaeology and Water Resource Science within this area.

Physical Science & Mathematics

Physical Science & Mathematics is about problem solving. You will focus on understanding structures in our day-to-day life and the theories behind them including the study of matter and how matter interacts. Dynamic modelling is a key element of the programs within this area. Learn more about Bioinformatics, Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematical Sciences and Physics.

Technology

This area is all about using the right tools to analyze the data in our world. These tools enable us to shape the future as they study physical characteristics of the world and beyond. Communications, information storage and human-computer interaction are common features of this area. Learn more about Computer Science, Bioinformatics and Physics.

Lakehead Advantage

Our faculty members are very involved in research at a national and international level. As a General Science student you will have many opportunities to participate in cutting-edge research on various topics including condensed matter, behavioural ecology, quantum-chemical exploration and DNA forensics. This hands-on approach to learning and well-rounded lab experience prepares you for success in any field, professional position or post-graduate training.

We have a number of dedicated, accessible resources to assist with research and to supplement your in-class studies including:

  • Lakehead University Centre for Analytical Services (LUCAS) Lab
  • Science Workshop
  • GIS Research Lab
  • Lakehead University Instrumentation Lab (LUIL)

Unlike other universities, you will be trained in the operation of lab equipment to gather and analyze your own data rather than passing it on to a technician. 

We also offer the ability to do a joint BSc degree with a Bachelor of Education (BEd) in Native Education at the primary, junior, intermediate and senior levels. This is particularly beneficial if you wish to teach in Northwestern Ontario. 

Applying to Lakehead University is easy and we are here to help you along the way.

Step 1 – Determine your general admission requirements:

  • Program specific prerequisite courses;
  • Equivalent of a minimum 70% overall final average (Canadian)

    Note: Meeting the minimum admission requirements is not a guarantee of admission.

Canadian College
 General Admission Requirements:

College transfer applicants who are applying to a program that does not have a college transfer pathway are eligible for admission consideration if they have:

  • Completed a minimum of 1 year of full-time academic studies at an accredited community college since leaving high school;
  • Completed the appropriate program-specific prerequisite courses; and
  • Achieved a minimum overall average of 70%. 
Canadian University
 General Admission Requirements:
  • Attended a university and successful completion of university level course work since leaving high school/college;
  • Program specific prerequisite courses;
  • A minimum overall average of C or 60%.
Canadian Bible College
 General Admission Requirements:
  • A minimum overall average of C / 60% or equivalent;
  • College must be accredited by the Association of Biblical Higher Education (ABHE);
  • Successfully meets the minimum program specific preparatory course prerequisites at the Grade 12U or M level or equivalent;
  • If not eligible right out of high school, a minimum of two years of full time studies must be completed at the Bible College.

The General Science program strives to overcome the restrictions of traditional programs by allowing as much latitude as possible when choosing courses. Therefore, first year requirements are very flexible and driven by your interests. 

Five credits must be taken within the Faculty of Science and Environmental Studies such as Chemistry, Biology, Physics or Calculus. 

Out of the 15 courses you will complete to successfully attain your BSc, no more than four may be taken outside of the Faculty of Science and Environmental Studies and the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, as well as the Faculty of Education if you are pursuing a joint Native Education degree. If you wish to major after first year, these requirements will change based on your field of choice.

We encourage you to get involved in our Science Outreach Programs - Science Olympics, Faculty of Science & Environmental Studies Speaker Series and Superior Science - held throughout the academic year and in the summer. 

Participating as a mentor in the Science Olympics and for Superior Science is a great way to gain experience in the field and add to your resume, especially if you are considering teaching in the future. Our Speaker Series is always diverse and informative and will undoubtedly open your eyes to new topics and ideas.

If you are interested in attending a professional workshop or giving a presentation based on your research, the Science & Environmental Studies (SES) Undergraduate Conference Travel Award can help you do so. Each year 10 awards are presented by the Dean of Science & Environmental Studies to help students expand their knowledge and represent Lakehead University. This is a great opportunity for those considering graduate studies.
