2 In order to get credit for UBC CHEM 121 (4), Langara students must take both LANG CHEM 1120 & LANG CHEM 1220. Credit will also be given for UBC CHEM 123 (4) which will be applied towards electives. 

CHEM 111 and PHYS 100 are intended for students without CHEM 12 and PHYS 12, respectively. If students do not have Grade 12 level in both sciences, they are encouraged to select a science not taken at the Grade 12 level (Students without Physics 12 must replace 3 credits of electives with UBC PHYS 100 (Langara’s PHYS 1118) prior to taking PHYS 101). 

4 Students may take MATH 180, 184, 190 (4 credits) or MATH 110 (6 credits) instead of MATH 100, 102, or 104 (3 credits), but the credit difference cannot be applied towards program elective requirements.

5 Students with strong computing skills, especially in the use of spreadsheets, can replace FRST 232 with 3 credits of electives, upon approval by the program director.

Commerce Option (Minor in Commerce)

Students desiring a stronger foundation in business are encouraged to consider the Minor in Commerce, offered through the UBC Sauder School of Business.  In the Minor, students focus their senior electives on commerce courses in organizational behaviour, marketing, business finance and strategic management.  This option enables students to develop their business knowledge and management skills, and prepares them for management roles and advanced business degrees.

Interested students can apply in Term 2 of their second year (non-co-op students) or third year (co-op students).  To be eligible for admission, students must have:

  • a cumulative average of at least 68% in the previous two years andhave successfully completed the following courses:
