Welcome from the Dean
A university is a place of growth, of questions, and of answers. It encourages you to be bold. To reach for and exceed your potential.
As a Faculty, we provide a mutually respectful forum for discussion and debate, where diverse perspectives are welcomed, and where the curious thrive — a place where you have room to explore and develop your interests.
Our liberal arts programs provoke, inspire, and quench your thirst for knowledge. Our professional programs accelerate your career. You’ll have access to international opportunities that give you a global perspective and a competitive edge that will stay with you for the rest of your life.
As a student in LA&PS, you’ll develop incredible relationships with fellow students, professors and professionals in your field. Your education will include academic learning and community experiences. When you graduate, you’ll leave York with a strong network that reflects your multi-faceted education.
Be bold. Jump in. Take advantage of everything that we offer. From on-campus mentors to skills workshops, student clubs, and academic advisement services, your experience at York will be richer and more meaningful with every new connection.
As Dean of your Faculty, I am committed to your personal growth and success. I encourage you to explore our website, to take a campus tour, and to get in touch with current students to hear about what university life here is really like.
I look forward to seeing you on campus!
Dr. Martin Singer
Dean, Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies
