The Faculty of Science, Applied Science and Engineering (SASE) offers the following degrees: Bachelor of Health Science, Bachelor of Nursing, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, Bachelor of Science in Economics, and Bachelor of Science in Engineering. Within these programs are a variety of majors, honours, and specialization options that allow students to focus on a particular field. Students also have the opportunity to explore interests with a variety of minor and certificate programs. Co-operative education is available in some programs that enable students to combine academic studies with work terms. Details about each of these options is located in Section E: Saint John Academic Programs section of the Calendar under Degree information.

In the Faculty of Science, Applied Science and Engineering, the minimum acceptable grade in a required course or course being used as a prerequisite is normally a grade of "C". Any student who fails to obtain a "C" or better in such a course must repeat the course (at the next regular session) until a grade of "C" or better is attained. Students will not be eligible for graduation until such deficiencies are removed. Some programs may have additional grade requirements. Please see specific degree programs for further information.

Students are strongly recommended to read the University-wide Regulations, Section III of this Calendar, and in particular the subsection headed Grading and Classification. Any point not covered in the following regulations will be governed by the General University Regulations. 


Minor programs are offered to broaden a student's educational background and complement a Major or Honours program. Students in degree programs who complete the requirements for approved minor programs at UNB, will receive recognition of the minor upon completion of the respective degree program. Minors follow the University guidelines outlined in Section B.V of the Undergraduate Calendar and consist of a sequential and coherent grouping of courses totalling at least 24 credit hours (with a grade of C or better) as approved by the department offering the Minor. Science Minors are offered in the disciplines of Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Geology, Health Science, Psychology, Mathematics and Statistics.
