Teaching and learning

Teacher writing on chalkboard

Teaching and learning are at the centre of what we do in the Faculty of Arts.  A university is a place to discover and develop knowledge; and the best way to ensure this is by teaching the next generation.

Waterloo Arts instructors are committed to sharing new ideas, understanding and perspectives with and among their students. Ask any professor - he or she will tell you that they learn as much from teaching as do their students.

Our undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to find and make connections between theory and practice, between past, present and future, between disciplines and between cultures. We want our students to graduate with critical and creative insights on our diverse and rapidly changing world, and to recognize their own potential to contribute to society.
