Arts & Science In the News

Queen’s University has launched a new ‘laddered’ Graduate Diploma and Master’s program that will provide students interested in pursuing or accelerating their career in the arts with a 360-degree view of the arts and culture industry.

Through the programs, offered by the Dan School of Drama and Music in collaboration with the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts, students can earn a Graduate Diploma in Arts Management with the successful completion of the six-week term, or continue with the Master’s in Arts Leadership.

For exchange students arriving at Queen’s for the winter term, it’s the beginning of a new learning experience.

On Thursday, Jan. 5, an orientation session was hosted by the Queen’s University International Centre (QUIC) for exchange students from the Faculty of Arts and Science to provide some basic information about life at Queen’s and in Kingston, such as the resources that are available from the many campus partners.

In a Queen’s tradition, the students also received tricolour scarves and mittens donated by the Campus Bookstore as they face the Canadian winter.

Queen’s University announced today the appointment of Barbara Crow as dean of the Faculty of Arts and Science for a five-year term effective July 1, 2017.

Exam time is often a time where increased levels of stress, long hours of studying and little personal time can add up to an overwhelming situation for some students.

To help students along the way, Student Wellness Services will be running the 15 Days of Exams Health Challenge across social media platforms Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr.

Kate Humphrys, Health Promotion Coordinator at Student Wellness Services, suggests students take a comprehensive approach – looking at the bigger health picture – when it comes to staying healthy and managing stress at exam time.

*This statement was read by the Dean at Faculty Board on Friday, November 25, 2016.

As the principal said in his statement earlier this week, we, in the Faculty of Arts and Science, are upset and disappointed by the recent events at Queen’s. Any racist event or activity that serves to degrade, mock or marginalize is completely unacceptable and disturbing.
