Welcome from the Dean
A university is a place of growth, of questions and of answers. It is also a place for you 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, not stifled. We're a place where the curious thrive, where traditional boundaries are pushed, a place where you have room to explore and develop your interests.
Our undergraduate degree programs cover a wide range of areas: liberal arts programs that provoke, inspire and will quench your thirst for knowledge; professional programs to accelerate your career; international opportunities to give you a competitive edge—each of these areas with courses as diverse as our student population.
We pride ourselves on offering accessible education and educators who are accessible. Our learning options cater to your needs, whether you wish to pursue your studies during the day, in the evening or on weekends, year-round. We'll support you outside of the classroom too—by challenging you, encouraging you and helping you to reach your goals. You'll develop incredible relationships with fellow students, professors and professionals in your field. It won't just be the course content that matters; community and volunteer initiatives, as well as opportunities to engage with our researchers, will help you build strong networks that will continue to thrive long after you've graduated.
As soon as you start, jump right in and take advantage of all that we offer: connect with an on-campus mentor; attend skills and study workshops; connect with students who share a passion; get advice and support from our academic advisers; and join one of our many clubs and student associations.
As Dean of your Faculty, I am committed to your personal growth and success. I encourage you to explore our website, to watch one of our LA&PS videos, to take a campus tour and to connect with current students to hear about what university life here is really like.
