An education in the humanities is a wise investment. It leads to personal development and fulfillment, and also to the cultivation and acquisition of skills that are transferable to many different contexts. In our courses, which cover a wide range of topics, you will enhance and refine your abilities to read and write well, to understand the great works of many different cultures, to reason critically, to argue persuasively, and to communicate well.
We are dedicated to delivering these courses effectively. We continue our commitment to having our best professors teach our undergraduate introductory courses. Tutorials, office hours, and online access to professors also keep our students connected. We are in the enviable position of being a relatively small Faculty (approx. 1,300 students) in a large University (approx. 30,000) and in your studies here you will enjoy the many advantages of both. These advantages include access to a massive library collection and a vast network of support services and amenities, small classes, including a 9 to 1 student-to-faculty ratio, and easy access to top-notch academic counselling.
NEW for 2013, the School for Advanced Studies in the Arts & Humanities (SASAH) is an exciting new initiative will deliver a transformative education to a small cohort of 25 students. Students will be exposed to interdisciplinary studies, second language acquisition, experiential learning, engagement with the digital world, as well as international travel and exchange. READ MORE
