An arts education is a liberating and transformative experience. Indeed, students are changed by their education in arts, more aware of who they are, how they are bound to a diversity of people around the world, and how this incredibly complex world actually works. They learn to cross inter-personal and cultural boundaries by cultivating their ability to see the world from someone else’s point of view, be they a character in an eighteenth-century novel, a nineteenth-century Chinese peasant, an aboriginal artist, or the manager of a high-tech firm in Japan. Such an ability prepares them for employment, entrepreneurship, further education, and the social and ethical obligations of citizenship — both locally and globally. In short, it prepares them for life.

Breadth and flexibility characterize UCFV's wide range of arts programs, whether students pursue a major in a traditional arts discipline, a career-oriented diploma, or an innovative combination of educational options.

UCFV offers a Bachelor of Arts degree with majors, extended minors, and minors in a number of disciplines. A list of available options is included in the BA section of the calendar. Students who have completed a minimum of 60 university-level credit may also qualify to receive a Liberal Arts diploma.

An Associate of Arts degree is a two-year credential that also serves as an intermediate qualification for students wishing to transfer a degree program at degree programs or another educational institution. There are four associate degree options: International and Development Studies, Media and Communication Studies, Theatre, and the general option.
