This Dual Degree program option offers qualified students the opportunity to earn, in one course of study, a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Faculty of Arts and a Master of Management degree from the Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration (Sauder School of Business). The Dual Degree program option can be completed in four and one half years through intensive study and scheduling, and includes extensive professional development and career preparation, provided throughout the program of study by the Business Career Centre in the Sauder School of Business. Additional fees are required for the program. Participation in Co-operative Education and Go Global exchange while completing the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree is permitted. Students in the Dual Degree program option will be adjudicated for graduation from the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree prior to completion of the Master of Management degree.
Application for admission to the Dual Degree program option is open to secondary students applying for admission to undergraduate Faculty of Arts degree programs, and is normally made upon application to UBC, prior to admission to the Bachelor of Fine Arts program. Any student accepted into another undergraduate degree program in the Dual Degree program option who later transfers to the B.F.A. may continue in the Dual Degree program option (B.F.A. and Master of Management) provided they meet normal Master of Management continuation requirements upon transfer.
Admission to the Dual Degree program beyond first year is limited, and applicants will only be accepted if space is available in the program. Further information, including admission requirements and application, is available at the UBC Bachelor and Master of Management Dual Degree website.
Students admitted to the Dual Degree program complete all usual requirements for a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. In addition, and as part of the elective credit for their B.F.A., students complete up to 12 credits of Commerce. See the UBC Bachelor and Master of Management Dual Degree website.
Promotion and Continuation
Student records are reviewed separately by each Faculty, according to their own rules, for promotion and continuation requirements. Those who fail to meet continuation requirements for the Master of Management degree program may be permitted to complete their Bachelor of Fine Arts degree program, provided they meet B.F.A. continuation requirements. See Academic Recognition, Promotion and Continuation and UBC Undergraduate Program-Master of Management Dual Degree.
