Complete your undergraduate degree & open doors to new opportunities

Is completing your degree something you have always wanted to do? Are you worried about disrupting your personal life or putting your career on hold?

With the Bachelor of Integrated Studies (BIS) program, offered in partnership with UNB's Faculty of Leadership Renaissance College, you can complete your degree while meeting the demands of work and family life. You can study part-time in a variety of formats at times that are convenient for you. Depending on your background and area of interest, you may be able to complete the BIS online or at a distance, without ever coming to campus.

The BIS is a unique opportunity to earn a university degree that integrates prior learning with courses that are relevant to your needs and goals, along with workplace and leadership skills. The program includes a Certificate in Leadership Studies that builds the critical thinking and decision-making skills that employers value.

Accelerate your degree by getting credit for your previous learning

The BIS program allows you to take advantage of prior learning that you have acquired through work, life, or informal education and turn it into credit through a Prior Learning Assessment (PLA). You may also transfer credits earned from UNB or other post-secondary institutions and apply them to your degree. You may be closer to earning your degree than you think!
