Switch from Arts to Science?

A photo of leahquin leahquin
I thought I wanted arts, but I've changed my mind. I was really late on decision making, and at this point I don't have the prerequisites to get into science programs in general. How difficult is it to switch from an arts major to a science major once you get into university?

It's not hard.
As long as you have all the pre-req courses that you need to transfer into the specific science program, you can easily transfer.

Once you have been accepted into the university it makes transferring a lot easier, however the Faculty of Science tends to be one of the harder ones to get into. If you are missing pre-req's you will have to get them... Often the university will offer courses that are similar to the high school version that you can use as upgrades to cover the pre req. If not, you should be able to find a local college that can offer these for you.

Good luck - sciences are worth it!
