The College of Arts is comprised of the Faculty of Humanities and the Faculty of Social Sciences. We have over 130 permanent faculty members, 14 academic departments and schools, and over 3000 current students. We offer classes on campus in Abbotsford and Chilliwack, online, and on-site with partners both locally and internationally.
Our graduates are self-reflective, critical, creative, knowledgeable, and engaged citizens prepared to meet the diverse needs and challenges of our workplaces, communities, and the world. An Arts education fosters Critical Thinking, Creativity, Communication, and Collaboration.
We prepare our future civic and community leaders to achieve their goals by providing engaging, rigorous, and applied experiences which build knowledge and transferable skills, stimulate the imagination and foster creativity.
We are committed to promoting the value of the Humanities and Social Sciences, and to excel in the delivery of teaching, scholarship, and service.
