UNB-Saint John to keep liberal arts curriculum

February 3, 2008

In his annual state-of-the-province address Thursday night, New Brunswick's premier Shawn Graham offered few details about the future of the University of New Brunswick campus in Saint John, which has been recommended to merge with a local community college. He confirmed only that UNB-SJ will keep its liberal arts programs "while expanding with new program offerings to meet emerging economic opportunities."  Measures will be put into place to "ensure greater co-operation between universities and colleges in the province."
