Bachelor of Applied Arts

This articulated degree between NBCCD and the University of New Brunswick (UNB) offers a combination of academic study and hands-on training. It is a four-year degree completed through 2 years of study at UNB and 2 years at NBCCD, in any order you choose.

Most students who enrol in the BAA program also graduate with a one-year Foundation Visual Arts (FVA) certificate from NBCCD, taken prior to starting the BAA degree. This means after five years, the student can complete a Foundation Visual Arts certificate and a studio diploma from NBCCD, and a BAA degree from UNB in only five years.

The Bachelor of Applied Arts (BAA) is a four-year degree. Students complete two years at UNB and two years at NBCCD. You are able to start the BAA at either institution, allowing for two years of continuous education from one institution, or you can alternate from UNB to NBCCD, or vice versa, each year.

envision yourself herecity of fredericton

Nestled along the shores of the Wolastoq River, Fredericton is as much urban energy as small-town charm. NBCCD is tucked within the historic Garrison District in the downtown core, with its countless festivals and events, restaurants, shops, pubs, and cafes. Slow down with a visit to a gallery, art studio or get closer to nature in a kayak, running a trail, or just hanging out in a park.
