The road to college isn’t always straight and narrow. Although many students know exactly what they want to do upon high school graduation, just as many are unsure. They may explore a field and discover it is not for them or they may take a nine-to-five job before deciding on their life’s path. For those who have an interest in science but are unsure of where they can end up, the general science programs Canada has to offer may help.

At Centennial College, for example, students can attend the General Arts and Science – Science program to advance their education and, eventually, their career. This program is designed for those who have an interest in fields such as: health, engineering, applied sciences or transportation and require a solid foundation for further education. In addition, students who are unsure whether university is for them or whether a career in the field of science is what they’re really passionate about may benefit. On the other hands, the science courses within the undertaking may also be perfect for students who know that college-level science is what they want to study, but don’t possess the academic admission credentials needed to enter a program of them choice. Please note that students who complete the one-year Science program with acceptable academic standing may be eligible to transfer to Centennial’s Practical Nursing or Pharmacy Technician program.

To gain entry into General Arts and Science – Science, students must possess at minimum an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or equivalent or be 19 years of age or older. They must also have the compulsory English 12C or U, or skills assessment or equivalent. However, possession of minimum admission requirements does not guarantee admission to program. Please note that students who have not finished high school or completed required science courses for post-secondary programs might be accepted.

During the eight months students spend attending science courses, they study a range of science subjects (such as biology and chemistry) as well as mathematics, communications, psychology, human genomics and learning skills. The specific science courses Toronto’s Centennial College focuses on include: Chemistry (emphasis is placed on understanding biological mechanisms and processes, rather than on simple memorization); Biology (emphasis is placed on the role of chemistry in daily life and in the development of new technologies and products. Students will be introduced to the classification of matter, chemical nomenclature and qualitative and quantitative relationships involved in chemical reactions); Technology Mathematics (mathematics course covering selected topics in basic algebra and trigonometry are presented); and more.
