Educating the health professionals of tomorrow

New interdisciplinary degree programs

The core of UNB’s Integrated Health Initiative is a suite of new, interdisciplinary training options that draw upon our strengths in health sciences, social sciences and business education – and that prioritize experiential learning. 

Bachelor of Health degree

Our Bachelor of Health, unique in Eastern Canada, prepares students to excel as health care administrators and policymakers, future medical professionals and informed citizens. It also exposes students to Indigenous ways of knowing, health and healing.

UNB will celebrate our first Bachelor of Health graduates in 2023.

Soon, this degree program will also offer an optional Extracurricular Undergraduate Certificate, providing participants with hands-on work experience across a spectrum of health and care environments.

Certificate in Nursing Leadership and Management

The Certificate in Nursing Leadership and Management is an online term-based program specifically designed to meet the needs of healthcare professionals starting their career in, or aspiring towards, leadership positions in healthcare. Developed with nursing managers, charge nurses, unit leads and other healthcare management roles in mind, this certificate is relevant across healthcare environments and will benefit individuals working in acute, long-term and community care throughout Canada.

Masters-level programming is also in development, including:

  • MBA in management in health, aimed at professionals
  • Master in health degree, focused on health, wellness and societal research
