McMaster Academic Planner

The McMaster Academic Planner or M.A.P. is an interactive, online tool, unique to the Faculty of Science at McMaster University. Designed to help students make informed decisions about their program options in the Faculty, it can:

  • Clarify grade 12 course Admission Requirements for each of the SEVEN Level I Science programs
  • Explain the differences between the 'Gateway' and 'Direct-entry' program structure
  • Assist with Level I (first year) course planning
  • Showcase Upper Level program and course options
  • Provide information about research, experiential education, and co-op opportunities offered by each Department, School, and Program within the Faculty
  • Give the option to Save OR Bookmark course/program selections to help guide academic planning and meetings with academic advisors.

The M.A.P. is designed to help answer questions for many groups, including Future Students, Current Students, Secondary School teachers and guidance counsellors, Parents and Guardians and McMaster Science community (faculty, staff, and academic and department advisors).
