Program Information

School:Dawson College
Faculty:Science, Medical Science and Engineering
Degree:Not Applicable
Field of Study:Physical Sciences
Description:Explorations Science (ESP) is a bridging program designed for students who did not take advanced science courses in high school. Each term, you will study Physical Science, Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics at the introductory level, as needed. Your remaining courses are chosen from the regular college curriculum: English, Humanities, French, Physical Education and complementary courses. Among the benefits of these programs are: close teacher-student associations, attention to individual abilities and problems, integrated study of mathematics and science, and improvement of study skills.

Successful completion of the Explorations Science program may lead to admission to pre-university science or medical/engineering technology programs. You must apply and meet the criteria for transfer into the program in which you wish to continue your studies.

Admission Requirements

Prerequisites:*These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.
    Applicants must have a Diploma of Secondary Studies (DES) or equivalent, including Secondary V Language of Instruction, Secondary V Second Language, Secondary IV Science, Secondary IV Mathematics (Technical & Scientific option or Science option 564-406/426 or 565-406/426*), and Secondary IV History. Students with a DES missing any of the above subjects may be admitted, space permitting, but may be required to complete remedial courses.

    *For students graduating from an Adult Education Center, the pre-requisite is Mathematics 436.

    Conditional admission to Dawson’s Explorations Science program requires that a student obtain acceptable grades in the Science pre-requisite.

    Conditional admission is based on Secondary IV final and Secondary V mid-term grades. Final admission into the Explorations Science program is contingent on obtaining a DES which includes the pre-requisite courses with appropriate grades.

    This program is open exclusively to students who are completing or have completed a secondary school diploma AND who have no post-secondary studies.

    * We make every attempt to provide accurate information on prerequisites, programs, and tuition. However, this information is subject to change without notice and we highly recommend that you contact the school to confirm important information before applying.
