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.
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.
