Did you know that UBC has four small comprehensive one-year programs offered for first-year students? The Faculty of Arts offers the Arts One Program and the Coordinated Arts Program. The Faculty of Science offers the Science One Program and the Coordinated Science Program. These programs offer smaller learning communities in a concentrated theme area, and opportunities for more first-year support from professors.
