Major Program in Immunology
(8 full courses or their equivalents, including two 400-series courses)
The Immunology Major Program is a Type 3 program. Only students with an average of 70% or higher in all of the required first-year courses and a minimum of 60% in each of these courses will be considered for entrance into the major program. Enrolment is limited and selection is based on performance in the following first-year required courses: BIO120H1, BIO130H1, CHM135H1 (formerly CHM139H1), CHM136H1 (formerly CHM138H1). Students may combine the immunology major program with another major program within Science, Social Sciences, or Humanities.
- CHM135H1 (formerly CHM139H1)
- CHM136H1 (formerly CHM138H1)
- One course from the following list:
- BIO220H1 / STA220H1 / TRN225Y1 / TRN236H1 / CHM247H1 / CHM249H1
- One full-course equivalent from the following list:
- BCH370H1/MGY377H1/ MGY378H1/ PHL281H1
- One full-course equivalent from the following list
- IMM428H1 / IMM429H1 / IMM430H1 / IMM431H1 / IMM435H1**/MIJ485H1***
* Students considering graduate school are encouraged to add the additional non-compulsory IMM385Y and/or IMM450Y1 research course(s), if space permits.
** This course is capped at 40 students. Priority will be given to Immunology Specialist students, followed by Immunology Major students.
*** MIJ485H1 requires MGY377H1 & MGY378H1 as pre-requisites.
The emphasis of the Specialist and Major programs are to provide students with a sound theoretical understanding of the cellular and molecular basis of non-self recognition, together with sufficient laboratory experience to enable the students to consider embarking on a career in the discipline.
