Applications for Competitive Majors and All Minors
What you need to know:
Hey, LFS! It’s exciting when you start to focus your studies and get to study specific areas of interest. But, before you apply to any of the competitive majors or minors below, you’ll want to take note of a few things:
Not all majors require an application (which is why not all majors are listed below)
Not all minors are available for students in all programs
So, if you have questions about whether or not you have to apply for the major you’re interested in, or are curious about whether or not a minor below is available in your particular program, bring yourself up to speed here, or contact LFS Student Services to review your particular options, and implications of making choices.
The Food Science major is competitive, which means you will need to apply if you wish to be considered. Both your academic performance and a letter of intent will be assessed when determining your fit for this major. You can find details about admission requirements and timelines in the UBC Academic Calendar.
The Food and Nutritional Sciences Double Major is competitive, which means you will need to apply if you wish to be considered. Both your academic performance and a letter of intent count toward UBC's assessment of your fit for the major. You can find details about admission requirements and timelines in the UBC Academic Calendar.
If you are a college or university student interested in pursuing this major at UBC, you should apply for both the Bachelor of Science in Food, Nutrition and Health (the degree that you will be working towards) and the Food and Nutritional Sciences Double Major (the specific major within the degree program).
