Faculty of Arts

The Faculty of Arts is a vibrant community where the Creative and Performing Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities come together in exciting ways.

The synergies from fifteen departments, six outstanding performing arts venues, five professional schools, a world-renowned museum and a leading art gallery inspire students to become critical thinkers and inspiring leaders.

Each day in the Faculty of Arts, we explore ways to create positive change in the world around us. We are asking alumni, donors and community members to imagine what we could do together.

Join us to explore the possibilities.
