**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. Applicants will be notified of their admission decision from LFS Student Services by email in early June.
The Sustainable Food Systems Minor consists of:
- LFS 350
- 12 credits from 300- or 400-level courses from an approved list of courses available on the Faculty website
- 3 credits selected from APBI 465, LFS 450, or LFS 496 for a total of 18 credits.
Of the upper-level credits required for the minor, a maximum of 6 credits can be double-counted towards the required courses or restricted elective requirements of the major. The remaining upper-level credits may be completed within unrestricted elective requirements (if possible with careful planning). There are no restrictions on double-counting lower-level prerequisites or requirements, if they exist for the minor program.
Please state in a letter of intent of no more than 500 words your aspirations pertaining to completing a Minor in Sustainable Food Systems in the Faculty of Land and Food Systems, including how the Minor in Sustainable Food Systems fits with your career goals. Please address your letter to the attention of LFS Student Services.
