New Program Proposals: Faculty members wishing to propose a new academic program at UBC Okanagan are encouraged to use the following resources to guide them through the process and ensure alignment with UBC Okanagan’s strategic priorities.
New programs can range from a new minor, major, undergraduate or graduate program, to major changes in an already existing academic program. Depending on the nature of the proposal, approval by UBC’s Board of Governors and/or Ministry of Advanced Education may be required. However, review and approval by UBC Okanagan’s Senate is always required.
