*Minimum grade of 60% or "C" required. English or writing/composition courses taken at institutions in countries where English is not the primary language do not satisfy this requirement. ENGL 100, ENGL 112, WRDS 350, Arts One or CAP satisfying the Faculty of Arts writing requirement is acceptable. Courses that are transferrable as WRCM 1st for 3 credits will also meet the writing/composition requirement. Applicants are strongly encouraged to complete WRDS 150 or one of the suggested equivalents; if you complete a first-year English or writing/composition course that is not equivalent, we will consider it on a case by case basis. In addition to meeting the writing/composition requirement for the BCom program, you must also meet the English Language Admission Standard for admission to UBC.
** This minimum requirement is for the purpose of eligibility for admission to the UBC BCom program. All courses listed must be completed to fulfill BCom degree requirements.
If admitted to the program, you will select a specialization—also referred to as an “option"—when registering for your Year 3 courses. Many COMM 20x and COMM 29x courses are prerequisites that must be completed before taking courses within a specialization.
