Ideas and actions
Welcome to the Faculty of Arts, a dynamic community of students, faculty and staff working in and across the humanities, social sciences, and fine, performing and media arts.
Through our diverse range of research, teaching, and learning, we contribute positive social impacts in a culturally complex and technologically driven world. Aligned with the University of Waterloo’s strengths in work-integrated learning, Arts prepares students for life and for work with skills and values that emphasize the welfare of individuals, communities, and the environments in which we live.
