After being accepted to the UBC Faculty of Arts and your online registration portal opens in June, you can enrol into Arts One by inputting your course selection into the Student Service Centre.

How to register

In total, you will be registering into an 18 credit timetable. Each week in Arts One will consist of one lecture, one seminar happening twice a week, and a tutorial. You will still have 12 remaining credits that can be used to choose any of the elective courses available to first-year students at UBC.

Course ARTS.001A.00A will be on Mondays, 10am-12pm. This is taught collaboratively by a team of instructors so professors will be alternating each week to deliver lectures.

Choose from seminar options ARTS.001A.LA1, LA2, LA3, LA4, or LA5. Each seminar will take place twice a week for 90 mins each, and is led by an Arts One professor. This is where you will have in-depth discussions about the topic introduced in lecture.

Your Arts One lecture will come with a tutorial where you and three other Arts One students meet with your professor once a week for one hour. The day and time will be decided by you and your prof when classes begin in September. This will be where students receive feedback about their papers.
