Design your own timetable
Most first-year UBC Science students design their own timetable, which offers the most flexibility. You select both the courses and the sections you attend according to the requirements of the degree program you want to enter in second year. Most of your lectures will be in large rooms but your labs and tutorials will be in smaller groups. You should consider also taking one of two independent small-group classes: The first-year seminar in science and sustainability science.
Science One presents the traditional disciplines of biology, chemistry, mathematics and physics in a unified, integrated format. The program has its own dedicated space, and cultivates critical, independent thought as the basis of scientific inquiry.
CSP is suitable for students who have broad scientific interests and want to explore connections between disciplines. Along with enjoying a dedicated study space, students attend the same sections of specific core courses: biology, chemistry, physics and math.
