Second-year requirements by program

Bachelor of Arts - diversity requirements:

In second year, you are no longer limited by the diversity categories. You will need to take courses in four different subjects. These can come from any of the diversity categories (humanities, social sciences, languages, and sciences).

  • 6 credit hours in three different subjects (18 credit hours / 6 courses)
  • 3 credit hours in a fourth subject (1 course)
  • 9 credit hours of electives (3 courses)

Note: You may take up to 12 credit hours (4 courses) in the same subject. 

Bachelor of Applied Arts

** If you plan to spend your second year at NBCCD, please notify their registrar by March 31st. Email Nancy.Beaulieu@gnb.ca **
If you plan to continue at UNB for your second year, you will take 30 credit hours of your choosing. 24 credit hours (8 courses) must be completed at the upper level (3000 and 4000 level). Please consult Dr. McNutt (lmcnutt@unb.ca) on your choices before you register.

Bachelor of Arts and Science (BAS) and Concurrent Degrees (BABSc and BABCS)

In second year, you will take 12 credit hours of Arts courses as follows:

  • Take 6 credit hours in one subject from a diversity category different from your choice in first year (Languages, Humanities, Social Sciences)
    For example, if you took Psychology as your Social Science Arts course in first year, choose 6 credit hours in a subject from Languages or Humanities in your second year. This will complete your year 1 diversity requirements by ensuring you have taken courses in 3 of 4 diversity categories.
  • Take 6 credit hours in the Arts subject you plan to major in.

Make sure you consult Dr. Woodworth on your choices (mwoodw@unb.ca).
