Graduate academic units

The Faculty of Arts offers 12 graduate programs at the master's and PhD level through eight graduate academic units (GAU).

GAU is an administrative unit of graduate programs offered in a discipline. A typical GAU consists of all members of a department and some external members from other departments at UNB from both the Fredericton and Saint John campuses as well as from other institutions. A GAU works directly with the School of Graduate Studies in all matters related to its graduate programs.
