The first year of UNBF Physics Program is offered on the Saint John Campus. The two programs are:
1. Honours: This program is designed primarily for qualified students intending to pursue a postgraduate education. The Honours program requires more specialization and a greater overall course load than the Major program.
2. Major: The Major program allows a wider choice of courses outside the Physics Department and a somewhat reduced course load.
In addition a student may specialize in Physics or Applied Physics. The Applied Physics program may be entered by any student with a satisfactory record in either first year Science or first year Engineering. It is recommended that students in Applied Physics take, CS 1003 in the first year. The Applied Physics program is not an Engineering program and does not satisfy the requirements for a P.Eng. qualification.
All properly qualified students entering the first year of the BSc Physics program will normally complete the following courses:
