After your degree
A liberal arts education equips you for life. The Liberal Arts College teaches you to think critically, enhance your communication skills, and become a more resourceful, innovative and self-confident person.
You’ll join a small community of scholars to study great works in carefully constructed seminars. We aim to foster an intimate intellectual community by providing a rich student experience with activities, projects and trips.
You’ll attend coffee hours as well as formal dinners; be invited to put on talent shows, publish a journal of academic and creative work, attend galleries and concerts in Montreal as part of your classroom activities; and travel to New York City to visit museums.
The Major in Liberal Arts is designed so you may pursue our honours program. It can also be easily combined with another arts or science major. We guarantee this program will challenge your worldview and provoke critical reflection on where you stand.
Up to $4000 for undergraduate programs.
A Bachelor of Arts degree takes a minimum of three to four years (90 – 120 credits) of full-time study, depending on your academic background.
*Admission is to the major. Students may apply for a transfer to honours after completing 24 program credits.
