Scientists in demand
Currently, Canada is not producing enough scientists to be globally competitive, but federal and provincial governments are taking steps to alleviate this problem. For example, the Alberta Science and Research Authority plans to grow the province’s involvement in life sciences by 20% by 2010. Mount Royal’s B.Sc. is designed to help meet the high demand for scientists locally and nationally.
Choose from the following majors:
Common first year
All the majors take a common first year of study. This allows you to enter the program and discover firsthand where your scientific passions lie. Courses will provide experiential learning in addition to theoretical knowledge.
