French Studies

With more than 120 online courses on offer and over 130 of experience in distance learning, Arts and Science Online (ASO) is renowned for its innovative and diverse approaches to education.

Students chose online learning for a variety of reasons, including distance students pursuing a degree, a professional looking to earn a certificate or an on-campus student looking for interesting courses to take during their studies.

With the ongoing pandemic, professors and instructors in the Faculty of Arts and Science have had to rethink the ways they connect with students. Several courses have been adapted to the new world of online learning including redesigning the use of textbooks, using Zoom technology for performances, and exploring archaeology virtually.

The Faculty of Arts and Science celebrates 166 student-athletes as all-stars

A total of 426 student-athletes have been named Academic All-Stars, including 166 from the Faculty of Arts and Science. These student-athletes have achieved an 80 per cent average (3.5 GPA) or above over the past academic year and compete on a varsity team or varsity club.

This is a record high number and places Queen’s among the top five schools in Canada for the number of Academic All-Stars.

Open for registrations now, Arts and Science has launched 7 new certificates that are open to Queen's students this fall. Certificates help students add breadth to their degree so their resumes are more competitive upon graduation. All of the new certificates range from 12-18 units, what some call a 'snackable' credential.  These new certificates include:
