About the Faculty of Arts & Science

The Faculty of Arts and Science is the largest faculty at The University of Lethbridge, housing disciplines within the Humanities, Sciences, and Social Sciences. It is the foundation and provides the building blocks for all University of Lethbridge degree programs.

The Faculty of Arts and Science provides you with the opportunity to develop the skills of critical reading, understanding, interpreting, and explaining - all fundamental tools required for any profession. We also provide you with a high degree of opportunity to interact with faculty members and to cultivate your own interests, further enabling you to develop the ability to think and act critically on your own as well as acquire problem solving skills. Our faculty members are more than teachers. They are on the forefront of their disciplines and are working within evolving bodies of knowledge. They bring their research to the classroom, enabling students to see actual research in action.

We offer three very diverse degree programs: Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Arts and Science, and Bachelor of Science.

Arts and Science degrees can be achieved and completed in three different ways:

  • By completing all the requirements for the 40-course B.A., BASc., or B.Sc. degree program.
  • By completing all the requirements for the B.A., BASc., or B.Sc. degree program in combination with another degree program offered by another Faculty at The University of Lethbridge; for example, the Bachelor of Education or Bachelor of Management degree programs.
  • By first completing an approved diploma program at an approved institution and transferring directly into an approved degree program at The University of Lethbridge (please contact The University of Lethbridge for a list of approved diploma programs and institutions).

As a liberal education based institution, you must select courses from the Humanities, Social Sciences, and Sciences as part of your degree program requirements. As such you have the opportunity to study from within your areas of interest even if these areas are not part of your major. You can make your degree from The University of Lethbridge exactly that - YOUR degree - individualized to what you want to study.

Working in a variety of disciplines and developing a more rounded perspective will also give you more employment opportunities upon graduation. In the Faculty of Arts and Science, not only will you develop a range of skills useful to employers, but you will also develop a sense of critical thinking and understanding that will help you manoeuvre though all areas of your life. We provide you with the educational background for your long-term needs and success, enabling you to interpret the world around you and to find the answers to your own questions and research interests.
