Messages from the Deans

Welcome to Arts and Science Online, the home of online studies in the Faculty of Arts and Science at Queen’s University.Barbara Crow headshot

I am optimistic about what the next several years will bring. Although I am a recent addition to the Queen’s community, I am well aware that Arts and Science Online is renowned throughout the province and the country for its innovative and diverse approaches to education. I am proud to be working with a post-secondary institution and Faculty with such a robust reputation within an online learning community.

I have quickly learned just how integral Arts and Science Online is to Queen’s and to the hundreds of students who choose to take online courses every single term. I am amazed at the sheer number of exciting programs that are launched every year.

Whether you have chosen online learning because you are a distance student pursuing a degree, a professional looking to earn a certificate, or one of our on-campus students looking for courses to take during your studies, Arts and Science Online has countless options that will work for you.  I am so pleased to welcome you to this outstanding and exemplary community.
