Get to know Arts and Science


Queen’s offers so many options and opportunities for study and extracurriculars, there’s really no shortage to what you can explore and pursue here if you keep your eyes open! — Lydia Elbatarny, Third Year Biomedical Computing Student.


Hear from our current students and learn what it is like to study in Arts and Science with our Connect program. Our current students can chat with you about their experiences, answer your questions, and help ease your transition to life at Queen’s. We know that it’s important for you to find the right fit and our current students are in the best position to help you do just that! 

As an Arts and Science student, you benefit from the opportunity to choose from a variety of study options and to develop transdisciplinary skills that are highly valued by employers. In Arts and Science, you can customize your degree to go after your goals and career choices. 

Some students apply directly into our Fine Art, Kinesiology and Health Studies, Life Science and Biochemistry, Music and Music Theatre programs, and focus their studies on core courses in first year, but most go into Arts or Science and declare their major before entering second year. While you settle into university life in Arts or Science, you have the chance to explore and work with our faculty and advisors to uncover your real interests and opportunities for success. Sometimes that discovery happens quickly, and other times it takes some time before the “ah-ha!” happens. Either way, your first year will be a great experience.
