ducation in the social sciences and humanities is at the core of every great university and every great civilization. A strong arts education prepares students to be independent thinkers, capable of sifting through complex webs of information and forging a consensus among their colleagues and peers. It provides the analytical tools, perspective and communications ability that is critical to successful lives in virtually every field of human endeavour. From boardrooms to courtrooms, from television studios to the highest level of government, graduates of McGill’s Faculty of Arts are making their mark around the world. A great university without a great faculty of arts is unimaginable.
The Faculty of Arts provides students with an extensive base of intellectual content and skills enabling them to explore ideas, evaluate evidence critically, and communicate effectively. Your gift can help support faculty research, scholarships and fellowships, building and maintaining facilities and programs, and new technology.
