Humanities promotes a research-intensive environment to promote humanistic inquiry and exchange by supporting innovative scholarly projects and by creating opportunities for interaction among scholars, students and lifelong learners. The faculty aims to ensure that students acquire the analytical skills, historical depth, and appreciation of diverse cultures needed to assume leadership roles as responsible, ethical, and path-breaking scholars, cultural workers, creative artists, policy makers and professional communicators. Students are prepared to be thoughtful and engaged citizens in a global world.
The Faculty of Humanities comprises seven core academic units, with approximately 120 full-time Faculty, in a School of the
Arts, and Departments of Classics, English, French, History, Modern Languages and Linguistics, and Philosophy. Approximately 2000 full-time
