Degrees with flex appeal
As one of the largest Faculties in Canada, LA&PS offers a comprehensive range of programs in the social sciences, the humanities and related professional fields. Many of our programs offer double-major and major-minor options, which means that students can be inventive with their choices — studying what they love while learning what they need. We've got the flexibility to fit almost any schedule. Classes are offered year-round during the day and evening, with a number available on weekends and online.
Local and global connections
Leading-edge scholars and researchers from around the world bring new ideas to the classroom in more than 80 undergraduate and graduate programs ranging from Administrative Studies to Women’s Studies and virtually everything in between. Students gain real life experience through partnerships with leading businesses and non-profit organizations, preparing them for graduate studies and the demands of a constantly changing workforce and world.
Inspiring and engaging
Students are encouraged to be active in their education and to take advantage of the rich resources and opportunities available to them in LA&PS and at York. Small learning communities, college affiliations, skill development workshops, peer mentoring, career support and advice, and a wide array of diverse clubs and associations all help contribute to their engagement and success.
Giving ::: $1 Million Donation by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation
Students from Greek universities now have an opportunity to study at York University thanks to a $1 million
donation made to York by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.
The donation recognizes York's strong Hellenic Studies program and commitment to international students, said Martin Singer, dean of the Faculty of Liberal Arts and professional Studies.
|"This generous gift will deepen our ties with Greece and our sister universities there," said Dean Singer. "It will enhance York's already close relations with Canadian's of Greek origin in the Greater Toronto Area and across Canada."|
The donation will be formally presented at the Hellenic Heritage Foundation annual gala taking place at the Paramount Event & Conference Centre in Woodbridge, Ontario June 7. Read more.
