The Faculty of Arts, home to more than 6,000 students, 15 departments and numerous interdisciplinary programs, is built on more than 100 years of success.

With over 900 distinct courses, pursuing an Arts degree at the University of Alberta opens you up to endless opportunities, including:
Students in the Faculty of Arts have the opportunity to study abroad in over 100 international learning opportunities, including the Faculty of Arts own satellite campus in Cortona, Italy, as well as have access to the Arts HUB Career Centre which hosts the Arts Work Experience (AWE) program.

A gift to the Faculty of Arts makes it possible for us to offer outstanding programs that enhance our students’ education and expand our faculty’s presence internationally. Your donation helps realize the potential of our students and through them, enrich our community and our world.  It can fund new research, provide new learning experiences, build new spaces or give the gift of education to a student who would otherwise not have the possibility.

Give to Arts

In the Faculty of Arts, we know that learning extends far beyond the classroom. This is why we have agreements with universities worldwide, as well as run our own satellite campus in Italy, offering  you unique opportunities to experience learning on a global level. So where can we take you?
