Direct Entry Programs

In contrast to the Level 1 Gateway Programs, students enter directly into these programs and the first-year curriculum is a set of prescribed, required courses that must be completed before advancing to level 2 of the program.

Honours Integrated Science

The Honours Integrated Science (iSci) program is the country’s most innovative undergraduate science program, blending content from across the science disciplines, while focusing on the foundations of chemistry, earth science, life science, mathematics, and physics.

Our students learn in a variety of situations — from formal lectures and tutorials to inquiry-based team and individual research projects that involve hands-on laboratories and fieldwork.

Integrated Science students learn to ask creative and critical questions using a wide range of tools. Most importantly they are prepared to tackle real world challenges that face us today and in the future.

Honours Kinesiology

McMaster’s Honours Kinesiology program is committed to the discovery, communication and application of knowledge through the multi-disciplinary study of human movement, exercise and the relationships between physical activity and health.

Our comprehensive curriculum engages students in experiential learning. Our undergraduate students are taught by outstanding faculty, have access to state-of-the-art teaching and research labs, and benefit from our active hands-on approach to learning.

Honours Medical Radiation Sciences

Today, Medical Radiation Sciences is one of the fastest growing primary health care fields. In recent years, innovations in information technology, digital imaging and instrumentation have made it one of the most advanced, specialized and dynamic areas of health care today.

Medical Radiation Sciences involves the use of ionizing and non-ionizing radiation for diagnostic studies and the treatment of patients. Ionizing radiation includes x-rays and gamma rays; non-ionizing radiation includes magnetic fields and ultrasound. The collaboration between McMaster University and Mohawk College of Applied Arts and Technology gives students in the Medical Radiation Sciences program the best of both worlds.
