Minor in Science

An acceptable program must comprise courses recognized in the Faculty of Science that are for credit towards a Bachelor of Science degree and consist of at least 18 upper-level credits (300/400-level) in a single subject field or specialization, together with any prerequisites. Students should design a coherent and academically sound course of studies for their proposed minor, which must be approved by the Kinesiology Advising Office once you are third year standing. All courses must be acceptable for a Science Major in the proposed subject area or field.

In addition, the following courses can be used for credit towards a Minor in Biology: CAPS 301, CAPS 390, CAPS 391, FNH 350, FNH 351, FNH 450, and FNH 451.

Note that the 18 credits must be percentage-graded, and cannot be taken as Credit/D/Fail.

Students who wish to pursue a Minor in Science should be aware of the prerequisites of many of the upper-level courses in Science.

Students who wish to pursue studies in the Faculty of Education should be aware that courses which are acceptable for a Minor in Science may not necessarily meet the requirements for a teaching concentration in the Faculty of Education.

Upon successful completion of the Minor program, the notation of “Minor in Science” will be added to the student’s transcript.

Any further questions may be directed to the KIN Advising Office by phone at 604.822.4512 or by email at kin.advising@ubc.ca.
