The Department of Computer Science (www.cs.ubc.ca) offers opportunities for study leading to a bachelor's degree in Arts. Admission to the Major or Minor is not automatic and must be approved by the Department. Students may apply for admission to the Major or Minor in Computer Science upon attaining second year status (completion of 27 credits). Applying for the Major or Minor as soon as possible is suggested.

The Department accepts applications in April from current UBC Arts students. For application forms and further information regarding admission and continuation requirements, please see Computer Science Undergraduates (www.cs.ubc.ca/students/undergrad).

For information on advanced degrees, see graduate Computer Science.
