Minor in Arts or Science

A minor is a good way to broaden your studies, complement your option, have another subject area recognized on your official transcript, and expand your employment opportunities.

Minor in Arts

If you plan to complete a Minor in Arts, you must meet with an Arts Departmental Advisor who can assist you in completing a minor study plan.

Minor study plan  

Once you have your minor study plan approved by the Arts Departmental Advisor, submit the approved study plan to the UBC Sauder Undergraduate Office.

The minor designation will be added to your academic record at the time of graduation if you have successfully completed all requirements.

Visit the UBC Calendar to check the academic requirements of a minor in a particular subject area.
