Geoscience Syllabi


For the three disciplines of geoscience, APEGBC's syllabi are aligned with the Geoscientists Canada Knowledge Requirements. Each APEGBC geoscience syllabus lists the topics that are required knowledge in a particular discipline; each syllabus also contains a self-assessment checklist.

When you submit your application for geoscientist-in-training (GIT) or professional geoscientist (P.Geo.), please also submit the corresponding syllabus/self-assessment checklist for the discipline of geoscience you are applying in.

Why Use the Syllabi?

Geoscience students:

  • Use the syllabi to plan your courses in advance so that when you apply for GIT membership, you will be in a better position to meet the academic requirements.

New GIT/P.Geo. applicants:

  • Use the syllabi/self-assessment checklists so that you can compare your academic qualifications to each topic requirement in a particular discipline.

BC Institution-Specific Course Equivalency Lists
APEGBC has developed institution-specific course equivalency lists for BC universities. Please be aware that course codes are subject to change. A course can only be used once on the checklist. At this time, only equivalency lists for the disciplines of geology and environmental geoscience have been developed. We will continue to update as more lists become available. 

General Syllabi and Geophysics Syllabus

If you attended a post-secondary institution outside of BC or are a geophysics applicant, please use one of the following checklists.  Checklists assist in the academic review of your application. The course code for each corresponding topic on the list must match what is listed on your transcript(s). A course can only be used once on the checklist.
