UNB Saint John’s Faculty of Arts prepares you for a career in a diverse, changing world with practical, hands-on experience and unique opportunities you won't find anywhere else. From Criminal Justice to English and Politics, we're your pathway to a meaningful career.

The Faculty of Arts is housed in Hazen Hall, which features the campus computing centre, classrooms and a 240-seat lecture theatre. Look out a window on its north side for a beautiful view of the Kennebecasis River! 

This building is named for Sir Douglas Hazen (1860-1937), a prominent former premier of New Brunswick and member of the federal cabinet.

Faculty of Business

Learn from award-winning professors and experts in our small, friendly Faculty of Business. Innovative programs, community and industry partnerships, and a flexible one-year MBA: we want to enable you to launch an amazing career.

Program options

The Faculty of Business has two homes: the undergraduate program is housed in Oland Hall, which features five classrooms, an audio-visual theatre, a business case room with four break-out labs and a small computer lab.

The building is named for one of UNB’s most generous supporters. A loyal alumnus, (BSc 1930, DLitt 1978), Dr. Phillip W. Oland (1910-1996) was chairperson and CEO of Moosehead Breweries Ltd. 

The MBA program operates from UNB’s Grand Hall, a newly renovated building located in the heart of Saint John’s business district.

Students in SASE may have classes out of a variety of buildings, depending on their degree program.

SASE students will find themselves in all kinds of places off-campus as well. They get hands-on research in both our innovative field classes and in co-op and work term placements.

William Ganong Hall

If you are a science student, you will spend lots of time in Ganong Hall. The four-storey building houses facilities and classrooms for the Biology, Chemistry and Physics departments. It has the largest lecture theatre on campus, and scientific facilities such as UNB’s greenhouse, a controlled environment room and research laboratories. 

It is one of the buildings that open up onto UNBSJ’s quad – a grassy area great for studying, having lunch or spending time with friends between classes. 

Ganong Hall is named after Francis William Ganong (1864-1941), a graduate of UNB and former president of the Botanical Society of America.

The building is named for Kenneth Colin Irving, in recognition of his family’s significant contribution to the economy of New Brunswick and to the lives, culture and education of New Brunswickers.
