UNB Science

UNB offers graduate programs in Biology; Chemistry; Earth Sciences; Physics and Mathematics & Statistics.  The Faculty of Science offers both Masters and PhD programs in all 5 academic units.

All graduate level programs pair students with faculty members in those fields to supervise their research-based theses.  Students work individually or in small groups with their supervisor/advisor, focusing on laboratory and field research offering a rich training ground for faculty to mentor student's individually.  We accept incoming students every September, January and May, no official deadlines for application, your start date will depend on a number of factors including your supervisors schedule; funding availability; necessity of a study permit; etc. 

We have approximately 150 graduate students, who in turn work with over 100 faculty; adjunct and HRA's.
