1 A total of 6 credits of coursework is required to meet the Communication Requirement. 3 credits of the Communication Requirement may be deferred until second year

2 UBC MATH 110 (Langara MATH 1153 & 1253) may substitute for any of the specified differential calculus courses listed by decreasing the electives by 3 credits

3 Students without credit for Physics 12 must take UBC PHYS 100 (Langara PHYS 1118) prior to any other 100-level PHYS courses. PHYS 100 will count as an elective. Qualified students are encouraged to add UBC PHYS 119 (Langara PHYS 1225) or 109 by decreasing electives in other years by 1 credit. Students may delay taking 3 credits of PHYS 100-level to second year

4Elective credits together with required courses must fulfill the Faculty of Science's:
a.) Foundational Requirement;
b.) Laboratory Science Requirement;
c.) Science Breadth Requirement;
d.) Science and Arts Requirements;
e.) Upper-level Requirement;
f.) General Degree Requirements.
