Join us in November for events from programs and faculties.
Join us for a Month at Mac! For the month of November, we are inviting you to join us as we highlight different faculties and undergraduate programs each week.
Faculty and Program advisors will host an assortment of presentations, webinars and workshops, giving you a glimpse of what it is like to study at McMaster. During each spotlight week, you’ll have the opportunity to connect directly with advisors, recruiters and current students to ask questions ranging from admissions, student life and so much more!
Please note this is a registered event, registration will be made available in late October. Below is a snapshot of the schedule for November.
Experience an education that represents far more than a collection of facts, concepts and answers. Our award-winning professors and researchers value innovative teaching, a lifelong passion for learning, and working at the frontiers of knowledge.
The Faculty of Science offers seven Level I Programs.
Four Level I Gateway Programs: Chemical & Physical Science, Environmental & Earth Science, Life Science and, Mathematics & Statistics. Whether you know exactly what area of science you are interested in or are still undecided, the structure of our four Level I Gateway programs will provide you with a range of Level II program options.
Three Direct Entry Programs: Honours Integrated Science, Honours Kinesiology and, Medical Radiation Sciences. In contrast to the Level I Gateway Programs, students enter directly into these programs and the first-year curriculum is a set of prescribed, required courses that must be completed before advancing to level II of the program.
We invite you to explore Science at McMaster.
The Arts & Science Program is unique in offering an extensive integrated core curriculum, which bridges the divide between the arts and the sciences and also between academic study and social engagement. The majority of its graduates go on to graduate or professional schools in a wide variety of fields.
