Applicants should be familiar with our admission requirements, as explained on our website and in the UBC Calendar. Applicants should also be sure to review our Prospective Majors FAQ prior to submitting their application.
Applicants must meet our admission requirements by August 31, 2023.
Please note that admission to the MAJOR, COMBINED MAJOR, and HONOURS programs is not automatic. Due to a limited number of spaces within each program, some applicants who satisfy the minimum prerequisites may not be admitted.
For ECPO Applicants
Those applying for our COMBINED MAJOR in ECON and POLI will need to submit two applications: one to us; one to ECON. You can find more information on the ECON application process here.
For HONOURS Applicants
HONOURS applicants will be asked to include a resumé (no more than two pages) and a 250-word supplementary statement with their applications. These are essential parts of your application. HONOURS applicants will also have the option to complete an additional 250-word statement providing context on their academic history which may not show up in their transcript (eg. personal circumstances which impacted their overall GPA). Applicants are not required to complete this statement.
