Science Minor Application

  • **Before you submit the application, please ensure that you have met the academic standing and course requirements as stated within the UBC Calendar.**

    Meeting the minimum academic standing alone will not guarantee you will be accepted in to the minor. Please give careful thought to your academic plan as part of your application, as it is important to demonstrate you have thought your proposal through before submitting.

    Please submit the completed form no later than March 31.

  • Accepted file types: doc, docx, rtf, pdf.

    Please state in a letter of intent of no more than 500 words (a) your aspirations pertaining to completing a Minor in Science in the Faculty of Land and Food Systems, including how the Minor in Science fits with your career goals; (b) your intended specialization in the Minor in Science; and (c) a detailed course plan that outlines how you will integrate the 18 credits into your major requirements (this can be done in bullet- or table-form). Please address your letter to the attention of LFS Student Services.

    Students should note that of the 18 credits required for the minor, a maximum of 6 credits can be double-counted towards the elective requirements of the major. Therefore students should be prepared to complete 12 credits in addition to those required of their program. This will extend the length of time it takes to complete your degree.

    Applicants will be notified of their admission decision from LFS Student Services by email in early June.
