About the Faculty of Arts



Dean’s Welcome

What kind of teaching and research takes place in the Faculty of Arts? A better question might be, what doesn’t?

Arts at the University of New Brunswick is an innovative and diverse faculty with almost 40 degree programs at the undergraduate and graduate level in departments specializing in the humanities (including Classics, Culture and Media Studies, English, French, History, and Philosophy), the social sciences (Anthropology, Economics, Political Science, Psychology, and Sociology), and interdisciplinary programs like Archaeology, Gender and Women’s Studies, International Development Studies, Law in Society.

In Arts you can pursue one of 28 different subject areas as part of a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree. Or, maybe a combined Arts and Science (BAS) degree suits your interest, or both a BA and a Bachelor of Science degree at the same time (BA/BSc). Want more options? How about earning a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Computer Science (BA/BCS) together? Or one of our certificate programs? All of our many options can be explored here.

If you already have a degree and are contemplating a graduate option, consider one of our many masters or doctoral programs. We have over 200 students studying at the graduate level, making a significant contribution to the wide array of research projects in Arts, some of which takes place at the many research centres housed in our faculty.

Connected to our community locally and provincially, Arts is also part of a vital network of scholars Canada wide. But we also offer a global dimension: you can take part in international exchange opportunities around the world while pursuing your degree, or one of our travel study programs, which combines learning and travel abroad.

The Faculty of Arts at UNB presents an ideal balance between a full array of academic options and smaller class sizes for better interaction between students and instructors. We’re proud of what we have to offer, and hope you will consider us for your post-secondary career.
