Declaring a Minor

Science students wishing to add an Italian minor to a Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree will choose their starting point according to their background, just as BA candidates do, but they will also have to present the Science Faculty’s Minor in an Arts Discipline Approval Form to the Student Programs Coordinator (fhis.undergrad@ubc.ca) to have it filled out and signed before returning it to the Science Advising Office.

BCom candidates will choose their starting point according to their background, just as BA candidates do, but they will also have to present the Sauder School of Business’s Arts Minor Study Plan to the Student Programs Coordinator (fhis.undergrad@ubc.ca) to have it filled out and signed before returning it to the Commerce Undergraduate Program Office.
