UBC Okanagan Faculties and Programs Grow

By Bud Mortenson

Among the new programs at UBC Okanagan this year are undergraduate degrees in Human Kinetics and Health Studies, and several new graduate degrees.

In September, the Faculty of Health and Social Development will launch a Bachelor of Human Kinetics program and a Bachelor of Arts in Health Studies in collaboration with UBC Okanagan’s Irving K. Barber School of Arts and Sciences. 

The Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies will offer interdisciplinary graduate studies (IGS) Master of Arts programs in Studies in Cultures and Text as well as Critical Studies in English, and an IGS Master of Fine Arts program that interweaves visual arts, creative writing, and performance studies. The faculty is also developing Canada’s first undergraduate degree program in devised performance, drawing from a wide variety of world performance traditions including theatre, dance, music, visual arts, new media, circus, story-telling, folklore, and ritual.

Other new graduate programs include Master of Applied Science and PhD degrees in the School of Engineering, new interdisciplinary graduate programs in optimization, and indigenous studies, MA and PhD degrees in psychology, and MSc and PhD degrees in biology.
