New Student Information – Bachelor of Arts & Certificate in General Studies Bring your STUDENT NUMBER & UNB E-MAIL ADDRESS found on your letter of acceptance to advising. Visit the Academic Advising Website: go.unb.ca/sjartsadvising The BA Degree: To earn a Bachelor of Arts degree, a student must successfully complete 40 termcourses. Term Course: A term-course will be offered either in 16/FA (Fall 2016 - Sept. to Dec.) or 17/WI (Winter 2017 - Jan. to April). Term-courses end in a number other than zero, such as POLS 1201, ICS 2102, PHIL 1053, or CLAS 1005. These courses count as 1 termcourse. IMPORTANT: Lab portions of courses will NOT count as a term-course toward the 40 term-courses needed for a BA degree. A UNB course number ending in 1 to 9 shall be counted as a maximum of 1 term-course and a UNB course number ending in 0 shall be counted as a maximum of 2 term-courses for the BA degree. How many courses do I take? Full-time students usually take a total of 10 term-courses per academic year (September to April), or 5 courses each term. Students typically take four years to complete a BA degree. Taking less than 5 courses in a term will extend the time it takes to complete the BA degree beyond 4 years. Certificate in General Studies students use these instructions to select up to a maximum of 3 termcourses in both the Fall (16/FA) and Winter (17/WI) terms. What courses should I take? There is no pre-planned schedule of courses that students must take in the first-year as each individual has different skills, abilities and interests. You get to choose from a broad selection of courses from the Humanities, Languages, Social Sciences, Sciences, and even some Business courses. Please refer to the Faculty of Arts Course Groupings. Step 1: Select courses from the Faculty of Arts Course Groupings sheet. You can read a brief description of the course(s) that interest you at: http://www.unb.ca/academics/calendar/undergraduate/current/ scroll down click on # 15. Saint John Courses. Step 2: Then refer to the UNB Course Timetables and search by term (Fall 2016 or Winter 2017) to see what term, day(s) and time that the course(s) are offered which interest you. Also check to see if the course still has seats available or not. The timetable can be found at: http://www.unb.ca/schedules/timetable/ Step 3: Make a tentative schedule of the courses you are interested in taking for both 16/FA and 17/WI. Step 4: Once accepted, and have activated your IT services, then register online. Log into your “myUNB Portal” at https://idp.unb.ca/ , select “Register for Courses”. Step 5: Email your course selections to the New Student Advisor, Joanna Zhao Duplessie at email@example.com for review. In the subject line of the email, put “2016 - 2017 course selections”.
