The Faculty of Arts and Science is the largest Faculty on campus. With 27 departments and three programs, the opportunity for students to receive a diverse degree is endless. The excellence of our teaching, facilities, and educational environment promote learning both in and out of the classroom, and the global impact of our alumni in their chosen profession showcase the strength of the education that our graduates receive.

Our benefactors have been a key ingredient in our graduates' success through their support of educational programs, research, professorships and chairs, new buildings and equipment and student initiatives. We want to thank you for your support in these and other areas of the University.

The ability of the Faculty to continue providing the same level of education on which we pride ourselves will not be possible without your continuing support. Your gifts may give a first-generation University student the gift of education, fund cutting-edge research for the cure of a debilitating disease, or give departments the resources to attract top academics.  We encourage you to consider supporting the Faculty of Arts and Science by joining the many other alumni and friends who have contributed to its future.

Give Now

Queen’s valued tradition of offering one of the country’s best broad-based arts and science learning experiences amidst a renowned sense of spirit and community is not about to change. But how we teach our students and what we prepare them for is changing. 

In an increasingly interconnected and globalized world, an interdisciplinary education, combined with new ways of learning and opportunities to understand local and global communities will equip our students with skills that are in demand among employers, professional schools, and post-graduate programs: critical thinking, communication and independent judgment.

Thank Q

In the early 1990s graduating Arts and Science students began a program entitled THANK Q. Graduating classes began working with the Dean's office to establish terms of reference for a project and pledged donations over several years to fund a specific class gift.
