The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree integrates the Humanities, Social Sciences, Languages and a wide range of Interdisciplinary Studies into a coherent academic program. The Faculty of Arts programs are divided into concentrations to encourage flexibility, independence, and knowledge in a diversity of disciplines. Students may concentrate in one Arts discipline while obtaining Minor Concentrations in other Arts disciplines as well as in disciplines in a selection of other faculties. This provides students with an unprecedented opportunity to tailor a unique academic profile suited to their specific interests and career ambitions. Planning your degree can seem overwhelming - but it doesn’t have to be. We have prepared a degree planning guide to assist you with this process.
