Plan Ahead – make sure you have pre-requisite classes for third and fourth year REs (restricted electives) that you wish to take.

Please consult the credit exclusion list when choosing REs: http://www.calendar.ubc.ca/vancouver/index.cfm?tree=12,215,410,414

This list contains courses with sufficient overlap that credit may be obtained for only one of the courses.

The following courses are permitted for FNH, Food Science or Food and Nutritional Sciences Double Major students as REs UNLESS the course is required for your program. For permission to take other REs, please contact your Program Advisor Dr. Vivien Measday (vmeasday.advising@ubc.ca). Health Electives (HE) are marked with an asterisk (*). HEs may also be used as REs if all HE requirements have been met. Please note that students who chose their major prior to 2017W are not required to take any HEs, as HEs are a new degree requirement. Please contact an Academic Advisor with LFS Student Services (students@landfood.ubc.ca) if you have questions about this.
