The Faculty of Liberal Arts offers a wide range of programs, from traditional arts disciplines such as English and history to new and interdisciplinary fields of study like User Experience Design and Labour Studies and Career Development. In all of our programs you’ll get both knowledge and know-how; all our programs offer you opportunities to apply what you learn in the classroom to the real world – what we call experiential learning. A degree in Liberal Arts provides you with many opportunities to explore different fields while developing essential skills in critical thinking and communication. Additionally, you’ll gain a greater understanding of the world around you – and how you can positively influence it.
Many of our undergraduate programs offer opportunities for students to include related postgraduate certificates from Conestoga College through either concurrent or Year 3 delivery in a unique campus partnership that permits shared student services with the college in Brantford. Two of our programs, Human Rights and Human Diversity and Law and Society, are part of a program partnership with the University of Sussex in the UK, which began in 2016/17. Through this pathway, you can receive both a Bachelor of Arts (BA) and a law degree (LLB) in six years – and have a significant international experience.
Our Master of Arts program in Social Justice and Community Engagement is unique in Canada. It combines in-class and community-based experiences to bridge the gap between social and environmental justice theory and practice.
