The social sciences are concerned with the contemporary problems of people in society.
There are three areas of study available within the social science department at the University of New Brunswick Saint John: information and communication studies, sociology, and sport and exercise psychology.
In conjunction with the Faculty of Business, programs are also offered in economics.
The social science department also houses education at UNB Saint John. For those interested in earning an education degree, there is the concurrent BEd (elementary school).
In the case of a concurrent BEd (elementary school), after you successfully complete at least one year of your first degree, you apply to the concurrent program and complete your studies at UNB Saint John.
