Program Curriculum

When successfully completed, these programs will make the student eligible for acceptance to the second or third year of the Department of Asian Studies at UBC, or the second- or third-year level of the Faculty of Arts in most BC universities, provided all other entry requirements are also fulfilled. With the proper economics and mathematics courses taken at Langara College, the student may qualify for further studies in business at a university. Students are responsible for confirming their selection of transfer courses with the appropriate university faculty.

The challenges and opportunities of an international career are many, especially if students are interested in cultural, linguistic, social and political similarities and differences among people.

Through a continuation of study at university, careers in education, research, business management, government and related areas will be more available to students.
