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

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!) .
14
1. Choose a specialization (e.g., Animal Biology)
15
2. Choose a major that complements it
16
3. Credits can sometimes be shared
6 credits
