Bachelor of Science - Psychology

In the Psychology program at UNB's Fredericton campus, you'll explore human behaviour- our desires, impulses, actions and emotions- in the context of the science that drives it.

The Psychology program will prepare you for a variety of careers, including policymaking at the local, national or global level, or professional programs in a range of healthcare areas such as neuropsychology, speech and language pathology, or medicine.

You'll have the opportunity to complete courses in:

  • Cognitive neuroscience (the connection between the brain and behaviour)
  • Drugs and behaviour
  • Physiological psychology
  • Surveys of the senses
  • Laboratory courses that allow for more intensive study

You will become well equipped to work in a variety of environments, and you'll gain the skills and knowledge to make decisions based on sound scientific principles.

Language pathway (conditional offer) is available
  • Duolingo with a minimum overall score of 115

International students who do not have an English test score, or who still need to improve their English skills, may be accepted into an undergraduate program on the condition that they will complete full-time English Language Training at UNB before starting their undergraduate degree. Conditional admission still enables students to obtain a study visa into Canada.

Students who are conditionally accepted to the UNB Saint John campus complete their English Language Training at Saint John College. 

Saint John College offers two pathway programs into undergraduate studies: the English for Academic Purposes (EAP) Program and the ESL Support Program. The EAP Program is a full-time, semester-based 4-level program designed for students with IELTS scores of 2.0-5.5 (or equivalent). The ESL Support Program is a one-semester, full-time program in which students take three advanced ESL classes along with 1-2 academic credit courses.

Students are tested and placed upon arrival and most students do not need to complete all five levels of language training before entering full-time academic studies. Saint John College programs begin in September, January, or May, although all levels of the EAP Program may not be offered in each semester.
