With more than 6,000 undergraduate and graduate students, the Faculty of Arts is the largest and most diverse faculty at Laurier. Our 19 departments and interdisciplinary programming span a number of fields in the social sciences and humanities.

We are committed to teaching and research excellence. Leaders in our fields of study, we bring expertise and learning into the classroom, honour the scholarship of those who have come before us, and challenge students to combine critical thinking with a commitment to global understanding.

Think Arts

As a Laurier Arts student, you can create a personalized academic journey that fits your passions. Concentrate on a single field of study or combine two. Add a minor area of specialization or one of our many program options. Apply for a co-op or an international volunteer placement, and consider studying abroad for a term. Experience the world through Arts.

Arts courses provide opportunities for you to develop important workplace skills, whether you are working towards a career in business, education or the non-profit sector. You’ll learn to challenge assumptions, communicate effectively, think critically and work cooperatively. Most importantly, you’ll be able to put ideas and issues into local, global and historical perspectives.
