The Faculty of Science is one of the university’s oldest faculties and was established when UNB was founded in 1785. Our faculty has an outstanding reputation, both nationally and internationally, and as a student you will be able to benefit from its stellar accomplishments in research and for its acclaimed graduate and nationally-accredited undergraduate degree programs. The impact of their research has led to four of our faculty members being placed in the world's top one per cent of chemists most cited in scientific papers.
Choose the program that fits your needs
You can choose from five main areas of study: biology, chemistry, geology, math and statistics, physics, and psychology, with 23 different degree program options within. In addition to our undergraduate programs, UNB Fredericton's Faculty of Science offers qualified students master’s and doctoral programs in each of the five graduate academic units. We also offer inter-graduate academic unit programs in applied mathematics and theoretical physics.
