Courses - Winter Term 2

Term 2 of Winter starts on January 4, 2021 and ends on April 8, 2021. Students should check the web page before classes start to ensure that there are no last minute changes.

UBC policy for Courses with Variable Credits
Some courses are listed with a choice of credit value such as topics courses. The form (3-12) implies that the course may be taken for any number of credits from 3 to 12inclusive.

In all cases, the maximum credit value is that which may be obtained by a student during the complete program of study (i.e. students cannot obtain more than 12 credits for topic courses with the same course number). For detailed information, please visit the UBC Calendar.

Topics Courses are generally not considered breadth courses unless it is specified as "Breadth course".

548201Directed Studies

Directed Study (CPSC 548) is a course that allows students to study a topic that is typically not part of the regular curriculum under the direction of a faculty member.  The student and faculty member should submit the Directed Studies Course Application and a proposal for the course outlining the course content to the Graduate Program Coordinator ( prior to the start of the course.

Course content appropriate for the student's thesis work (CPSC 549A, CPSC 549B) or essay (CPSC 589) is not appropriate for Directed Study.
