UNB, OCAD U, NWP launch new, expanded programming to support workplace preparation


The University of New Brunswick, OCAD University, and Northwestern Polytechnic have each recently announced the launch of new or expanded programming. UNB is expanding its biology-psychology Bachelor of Science program to its Fredericton campus, enabling more students to study the human body and human behaviour through an interdisciplinary approach. “The development of the bio-psych program is in response to repeated requests from students,” said UNB Fredericton Psychology Chair Dr Sandra Byers. At OCAD U, art and design students will be able to complement their studies with a minor in Science and prepare for careers in industries where a working knowledge of topics such as analytics, physics, or biology is required. NWP recently added two new bachelor degrees—a Bachelor of Business Administration and a Bachelor of Computing Science—and announced that its School of Business has been approved to offer post-diploma certificates in business administration with specializations in Financial Planning, Human Resources Management, and Marketing.
