Adherence to these programs will fulfill all course requirements for professional registration as set by the Association of Professional Geoscientists of Ontario (APGO) and the Canadian Council of Professional Geoscientists (CCPG). Programs require 4.5 Foundation Science courses. Students are responsible for ensuring course selections result in: fulfillment of current breadth requirements with at least 1.0 from each of category A and category B; and essay requirements, 2.0 courses, one of which may be the senior Earth Sciences 4490E thesis.
