Looking for a fun and rewarding first year at UBC? Think about….

 

The Coordinated Arts Program, a small program for first-year students at UBC.

 

YOU CHOOSE THE THEME YOU FIND INTERESTING
Five themes to choose from:
–  Global Citizens
–  Individual & Society
–  Law & Society
–  Media Studies
–  PPE
Students in all CAP streams go on to 2nd year with all other 2nd year students, and on to your choice of degree. At UBC students need not declare a Major until registering for 3rd year courses, so taking CAP during your first year is a terrific way to discover areas of interest!

 

EASY REGISTRATION
CAP is a STT (Standard Time Table), so simply choose one of the five themes you find interesting and the SSC will register you in all the linked lectures all-at-once. (oh, when applicable, remember to add any small ‘secondary’ or discussion groups. Those are important because that’s where you will discuss topics in more detail).

 

SMALL SUPPORTIVE COMMUNITY
CAP streams are small so it’s easy to make friends. You’ll get to know your professors. It’s common for CAP students to form study groups. And there are social and academic events throughout the year, exclusively for our first-year students.

 

CAPCON
It’s not mandatory but CAP students are encouraged to participate in their student conference at the end of the year: CAPCON. As a presenter of what they’ve studied during the year, or as an event volunteer, or in the crowd cheering on their classmates. It’s a wonderful way to (dare we say it) CAP off your first year at UBC 🙂
