Faculty of Arts

Areas of study

Whatever your field of interest, you will gain valuable — and transferable — skills in communication, research and problem solving.  Take your communication skills to the highest level and delve into the meaning behind film and literature in English.  Explore cultures and ideas from differing viewpoints in Humanities, which includes History, Philosophy, Religious Studies, Women’s Studies and Canadian Studies.  Shape the spaces in which people live and work with a degree in Interior Design.  Prepare for global opportunities in Languages and Cultures.  Build a solid foundation in policy theory, Economics and Political Science with a major in Policy Studies.  Study human behaviour in Psychology.  Get a better understanding of social relationships and society in Sociology & Anthropology.  Combine criminological theory with practical experience in Justice Studies.
