    Required electives:

    *Chinook 1 and Chinook Work placement will likely occur during the summer semester. Chinook 1 could continue through the Winter semester of Year 2.

    **These courses, plus the Chinook courses, are required if you intend to transfer to UBC to complete the Bachelor of Commerce Degree (Chinook Major). You must also complete Applied Calculus (MATH 108) and Managerial Cost Accounting 2 (ACCT 320) before you can be admitted into the UBC BCOM program.

    The two elective courses may be first, second, third or fourth-year Arts or Science University Transfer courses, or second, third or fourth-year Business courses, and include no more than one ABT course. We recommended you choose these courses as electives for transfer to UBC: ENGL 164 First Nations Literature, CRIM 135 First Nations and Justice, SOC 104 First Nations (Canada Past), SOC 106 First Nations (Canada Present).
