What is Liberal Studies?

Housed in the Faculty of Social Science and Humanities (FSSH), our new Liberal Studies program presents a unique opportunity for students to explore and develop knowledge and skills across disciplines. The program is designed to equip students with the skills and knowledge necessary to adapt to and thrive in a dynamic employment environment. The combination of required first-year courses common to all FSSH programs, two compulsory Liberal Studies courses and many elective choices will provide students with guidance and flexibility in course choices to develop as self-directed, lifelong learners.

Graduates from the Liberal Studies program will have a wide and solid academic foundation, preparing them for a range of professions and employment opportunities.
