This summer’s U-CUBE courses share the theme of: Canadian Studies.
Theatre 101 - Kick off your summer schedule with an introduction to a diversity of Canadian experiences explored through text and performance.
English 108 - Immerse yourself in Canadian literature.
History 102 - Develop your understanding of post-Confederation Canadian history.
Geography 130: Canada - Cap off your semester with discussions on the current and future geographic shapes of Canada.
Students can sign up for all 4 block courses, but are strongly discouraged from signing up for non-block courses during the same weeks. Students should anticipate spending 5-6 hours per day in class and out of class on coursework, field trips, etc. during the block course.
However, students wishing to take short-semester courses (May-June, and July-August) can alternate these with block courses. For instance, a student can enrol in a May-June course and then in the July block (HIST 102) and/or the August (GEOG 130) block. Alternatively, they can complete a May block (THEA 101) and/or June (ENGL 108) block, and take a July-August course.
Students should not take block courses at the same time as a short-semester course. In other words, they should not enrol in a May-June course as well as a May block or June block.
Some courses will have field trip fees, but there are otherwise no special fees for taking courses in the U-CUBE program.
In most cases, yes, but all students who plan on applying for Financial Aid should first speak with Student Services to find out more.
The learning outcomes of the courses in the U-CUBE program are the same as for the courses offered in the regular semester.
More than 3,000 students are pursuing studies in the UFV College of Arts, choosing from more than 20 academic disciplines. UFV arts courses will prepare students for careers that involve critical and creative thinking, effective communication, problem solving, and analytical reasoning.
