• The Faculty of Arts and Science is the founding academic faculty at the University of Lethbridge. Housing over 40 disciplines across the humanities, sciences and social sciences, the Faculty of Arts & Science has a major impact on University activities.

    Our foundational teaching and learning philosophy is rooted in Liberal Education. Our unique four-pillar model emphasizes breadth and connections across disciplines, the development of critical thinking skills, and the importance of engaged citizenship at all levels from the local to the global. This approach allows us to produce graduates with skills that employers want and that society needs.

  • Our instructors are distinguished teachers, active in research that relates directly to our local community and which has been acclaimed world-wide. Because we are a unique university, students have the opportunity to engage with our faculty, at both the undergraduate and graduate level, in this research.

    Moreover, the Faculty of Arts & Science offers students the opportunity to participate in Co-operative Education, Applied Studies, and Independent Studies experiences—paving the way for students to gain hands-on experience in industry, government and not-for-profit.
