About this faculty

A vibrant community where the Creative and Performing Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities come together in exciting ways.

The Faculty of Arts at UBC Vancouver is a research-intensive faculty, encompassing internationally renowned programs in the social sciences, humanities, creative and performing arts, and professional schools.

As the university’s largest academic unit, UBC Arts educates more than 16,000 students in bachelors, masters, and doctoral programs in more than 25 departments, schools, institutes, and programs.

UBC Arts provides compelling opportunities to explore among 3,000 courses taught by more than 1,000 scholars who are leaders in their fields.

Truly unique in its scope, UBC Arts is a dynamic and thriving community of outstanding scholars — both faculty and students.

The synergies from fifteen departments, six outstanding performing arts venues, five professional schools, a world-renowned museum and a leading art gallery inspire students to become critical thinkers and inspiring leaders.

Each day in the Faculty of Arts, we explore ways to create positive change in the world around us. We are asking alumni, donors and community members to imagine what we could do together.

Join us to explore the possibilities.
