As an Arts and Science student, you will participate in interactive and stimulating learning experiences, including lectures, seminars, tutorials, and experiential activities such as labs and field trips. By taking an innovative blended learning approach, our largest first-year courses have been redesigned to enable your professors to go beyond the lecture format and to focus on a more active classroom experience involving collaborative work in small groups. Our research confirms that blended courses enhance the student learning experience through statistically significatn improvments in student engagement. The Faculty of Arts and Science is committed to fostering and environment in which all members can grow creatively, challenge ideas, and debate without fear; increasing awareness of the diversity of people, cultures and societies.
