10 FACULTY OF AGRICULTURAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCES Macdonald Campus DEPARTMENT OF ANIMAL SCIENCE Majors in the B.Sc. (AES) A Major can be viewed as a “context” or “umbrella” for your chosen specialization(s). In other words, the Specialization is the “area” in which you are interested (e.g., animals, plants, soils, etc.) while the Major can be seen as the application of that area (e.g., production, biotechnology, international context, etc.). There are four majors in the B.Sc. (AES) under which our Specializations can be taken: The first two are the most likely to meet the needs of students interested in our Specializations, and are described in the next slides. Major in Life Sciences Major in Agro-Environmental Sciences Major in Environmental Biology Major in International Agriculture and Food Systems

11 FACULTY OF AGRICULTURAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCES Macdonald Campus DEPARTMENT OF ANIMAL SCIENCE The Major in Life Sciences consists of the following 42 credits that complement at least one of the previous Specializations. 9 required courses (27-credits): AEBI210Organisms 1 AEBI211Organisms 2 AEBI212Evolution and Phylogeny AEHM205Science Literacy AEMA310Statistical Methods 1 LSCI202Molecular Cell Biology LSCI204Genetics LSCI211Biochemistry 1 LSCI230Introductory Microbiology Plus 5 complementary courses from the following list: AEBI451Research Project 1 AEBI491Scientific Communication AEHM330Academic & Scientific Writing ANSC234Biochemistry 2 ANSC250Principles of Animal Science ANSC251Comparative Anatomy ANSC326Fundamentals of Population Genetics ANSC324Developmental Biology and Reproduction ANSC333Fundamentals of Nutrition ANSC420Animal Biotechnology BINF301An Introduction to Bioinformatics BTEC306Experiments in Biotechnology ENVB222St. Lawrence Ecosystems MICR331Microbial Ecology MIMM324Fundamentals of Virology NRSC333Pollution and Bioremediation PARA438Immunology PLNT203Economic Botany PLNT304Biology of Fungi PLNT315Herbs & Medicinal Plants PLNT353Plant Structure and Function PLNT424Cellular Regulation PLNT426Plant Ecophysiology WILD375Issues in Environmental Science WILD424Parasitology

Plus 1 course from each of the following sets: PLNT 300 Cropping Systems or PLNT 302 Forage and Pastures and ANSC 451 Dairy & Beef Production Management or ANSC 458 Swine & Poultry Production

13 FACULTY OF AGRICULTURAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCES Macdonald Campus DEPARTMENT OF ANIMAL SCIENCE Putting it all together! The following “demo” tries to give you an idea as to how you can select your overall program at McGill. Since Specialization names are still the most informative in terms of students’ actual interests, we suggest you think of the specialization name as your “program” and the area in which you want to study. Next, you should pick a Major that gives you the complementary background to use when you graduate (i.e., do you wish to go into research, work for a company, interact with clients at the ground level, work for international agencies, etc.). If there are two specialization areas that interest you, you can add a second. You should then pick your free elective courses in order to make up the total number of 90 credits (you can do this later on in your program as your interests develop and, maybe, change!).
