Executive Summary

This project originally stemmed from student demand. Discussion between faculty, staff, and students from Fanshawe College and Lakehead University identified potential pathway opportunities for graduates from both postsecondary institutions. After conducting a brief environmental and curriculum scan, the project team determined the need for additional resources to create a set of transfer pathways and also to assess if there were additional opportunities for pathway development.

The purpose of this project was twofold. Firstly, we aimed to develop a set of transfer pathways between the Chemical Laboratory Technology - Science Laboratory advanced diploma and the Honours Bachelor of Science (Chemistry Major)/Honours Bachelor of Science (Applied Life Sciences Major) degrees. Secondly, we wanted to assess the viability of developing additional pathways with other Honours Bachelor of Science (HBSc) programs at Lakehead University, including a double-major (Biology and Chemistry), and medical/biomedical concentrations.
