The University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC) began offering master’s programs in 1994 and offered its first doctoral program in 1996. UNBC continues to build and enhance its post-graduate degree offerings in all areas and now offers 28 master’s programs and 3 doctoral programs.

The Office of Graduate Programs serves as a central location and source of information for all graduate students and graduate faculty at UNBC. The office works closely with the Northern British Columbia Graduate Students Society to ensure students needs are met, and questions are answered. The Office of Graduate Programs hosts many workshops and events, including the Annual UNBC Graduate Student Conference hosted each spring.

Students are encouraged to explore the Office of Graduate Programs website to learn more about the services provided at UNBC and make their graduate experience more fulfilling.
