Western’s Faculty of Science has a national reputation for original, ground-breaking academic programs. In our rapidly changing world, science education at Western has remained relevant by adopting new flexible strategies. Students are able to combine various subject modules from different departments and faculties to construct a degree in one or more fields of study. Western Science has also developed interdepartmental programs that combine the skills and interests of different departments to meet student needs. For example, Western was one of the first universities in Canada to offer five-year concurrent degrees for selected programs, and only Western continues to provide such a wide variety of programs that allow students to earn two degrees in five years.
